Origami Now!


Through June 8, 2008 at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem MA:

"Originally developed in Asia, origami has evolved into an exciting art form explored by artists worldwide. Works in this intimately scaled exhibition in the museum's Art and Nature Center demonstrate the remarkable breadth of origami art, ranging from depictions of nature to self-portraits and abstract forms. In addition to showing masterworks of origami, the exhibition reveals connections between origami and innovations in other disciplines, such as design, medicine and math. Interactive displays give visitors of all ages opportunities to engage in the artistic process of origami."

These days the ancient art form continues to inspire and inform modern trends and folded products. The newest works include origami-like window treatments, flatware and seating.
