Created by Santa Fe artists, Jennifer and Kevin Box, these sculptures tell the story of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding and elevate the ancient art of origami to new heights, using the technique of lost-wax casting and fabrication. Each piece glorifies the precision of origami in stately museum-quality metals using an innovative 35+ step process that took nine years to perfect.
 

The exhibition includes stunning large-scale metal sculptures created through collaboration with world-renowned origami artists such as Robert J. Lang, Te Jui Fu, Michael G. La Fosse, and Beth Johnson.
