Origami Art in the Garden Room Gallery
Check out these two exhibits on display together in the Garden Room Gallery:
Origami Unfolded – Nathan Brockman & Sara Merritt
Origami is a process that begins with paper folded in specific ways to achieve 3-dimensional effects. This exhibit features familiar forms like the paper crane, unfolded and mounted to show the crease patterns that serve as a sort of map to the 3D shape. Each piece begins with a base fold. Pay attention to the patterns - can you see where the base folds sprouted into new shapes?
Folding Cranes, Enfolding Community – Pamela S. Douglas
This traveling exhibit features more than 6,300 individually folded paper cranes, and serves as an Iowa COVID-19 Memorial to all Iowans who have tragically died from this virus. The exhibit displays cascading strands of paper cranes, and offers an opportunity for Ames and its surrounding communities to come together. Check out our Events & Education Programs calendar online for opportunities to fold cranes and hear from the artist on display September 23 – December 8.
