Origami in the Garden is a monumental outdoor sculpture exhibition created by Santa Fe artists Jennifer and Kevin Box. Box’s distinctive creations are well known in public and private art collections worldwide. Motivated by the impermanence of paper, Box pioneered methods of capturing its delicate detail in museum quality metals utilizing lost wax casting and fabrication techniques. Origami is the art of paper folding and each sculpture in the Origami in the Garden collection began with a single piece of paper. The exhibition features Box’s own compositions as well as collaborations with internationally renowned origami artists Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse and Dr. Robert J. Lang. The exhibition debuted at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden on Museum Hill in 2014 and has since travelled to the Franklin Park Conservatory, the Naples Botanical Garden, the Turquoise Trail Sculpture Garden and the Morton Arboretum.
