Origami in the [Naples Botanical] Garden, 12/23/2016

This exhibit by artist, Kevin Box, "tells the story of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding." The sculptures positioned throughout the garden were created by Box and his wife, Jennifer, in collaboration with world-renowned origami artists Robert J. Lang, Te Jui Fu, and Michael F. LaFosse

There are a total of 30 sculptures on display at Naples Botanical Gardens through April 23, 2017. A map with the location of each piece is provided at the entrance to the garden.

We had seen some of Box's work at the Baker Museum, also in Naples, but most of the sculptures here are on a much larger scale. Here are some of the ones we particularly liked.
