Celebrate World Origami Days with this pop-up display featuring 11 remarkable contemporary origami sculptures.

Explore representational, sculptural, and wearable examples of origami by noted origami artists Robert J. Lang, Goran Konjevod, and Linda T. Mihara. You’ll be awed and delighted by the amazing forms — from kimono jackets, high-heeled shoes, and abstract shapes to lifelike birds and fish — each folded from an uncut sheet of paper.

Typically associated with Japanese culture, origami (oru, to fold, and kami, paper) is the time-honored practice of folding paper into eye-catching works of art. While earlier forms were mostly representational, contemporary origami exhibits incredible complexity and new styles draw from modern-day inspirations.
