Origami in the Garden captures the delicate nature of paper in metal. This spring, the Missouri Botanical Garden will be filled with the monumental works of Jennifer and Kevin Box and their collaboration of origami artists. 

The exhibition elevates 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 of 18 awe-inspiring large-scale sculptures features flying birds, painted ponies, emerging butterflies, floating boats, a majestic tower that creates the illusion of 1,000 stainless steel origami peace cranes hovering above the water, and more.

Created by Santa Fe artists, Jennifer and Kevin Box, these sculptures tell the story of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding.

Making its St. Louis debut 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.

The daytime exhibit is included in admission and free for Members.
