Origami in the Garden

The Missouri Botanical Garden just opened a really cool exhibition…one that I’ve been anxiously awaiting since they had to postpone it due to COVID-19 last year…Origami in the Garden!

There are 18 large-scale sculptures around the garden, and we saw most of them this weekend:

They also have a really cool display in the Visitors’ Center which shows a few pieces on a much smaller scale, and also what a piece of paper that was folded into those shapes would look like upon being unfolded:

I’m looking forward to visiting this exhibition again (it goes perfectly with this year’s Japanese-themed summer school!), and catching the few pieces we missed the first time through!
