Origami Heaven 2012: Stories from Paper
From Aesop's fables and the Brothers Grimm to Tinker Bell and Harry Potter, the Charles B. Wang Center's 8th Annual Origami Heaven Exhibition celebrates Stories through Paper recreated and interpreted by esteemed origami artists from around the world. Join us to delight in intricate folded-paper tableaux of beloved stories, myths, and characters, and to learn new stories from past and present, home and abroad.
In addition to the exhibition, we offer folding sessions with origami artists every day at 12:00 PM.
The exhibition is also complemented by our annual Origami Heaven Festival on August 7, 2012.
