Origami means "folding paper" in Japanese. Origami in the Garden is an outdoor exhibition, created by Santa Fe artists Jennifer and Kevin Box that captures the delicate nature of this paper art form in museum-quality sculptures. Discover what can be folded from a single piece of paper: soaring birds, gliding airplanes, galloping ponies, floating boats, and emerging butterflies. The exhibition features the Boxes' own compositions and collaborations with origami artists Tim Armijo, Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse, and Robert J. Lang.
In 2019, the Turquoise Trail Sculpture Garden, south of Santa Fe, is hosting the monumental collection of sculptures. This private residence is nestled in the Little Garden of the Gods on Highway 14, a National Scenic Byway. With towering rock formations encompassing the three-acre garden, visitors meander through a distinct southwest landscape, discovering sculptures along the way. The garden is only open to the public May 27, 2019 to October 14, 2019, Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m.–4:30p.m. Daily guided tours are available at 9:45 a.m. During the Santa Fe Studio Tour weekends June 22–23 and 29–30 visitors can go behind the scenes, capturing a glimpse into the artist's process in the studio.
Also in 2019, the traveling exhibits can be viewed in the beautiful Great Lakes Bay Region at Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan, and the coastal forests of Cape Fear Botanical Garden in Fayetteville, North Carolina. All locations promise to take visitors away from the hustle bustle of life and into an artful experience of Zen in an outdoor garden.
