Through May 1 at the Longmont Museum, 400 Quail Rd. in Longmont, Colorado
Exhibition – $8 adults, $5 children, Museum members free
Above the Fold: New Expressions in Contemporary Origami is the Longmont Museum’s newest special international art exhibition, running through May 1. In the hands of nine artists from Japan, France, Canada, the U.S., Israel and England, what was once considered a children’s craft becomes a sophisticated global art form. Paper is transformed into breathtaking sculpture, large-scale origami installations and conceptual works that express contemporary social, political and aesthetic ideas. Above the Fold was developed by International Arts & Artists and independent curator, author and educator Meher McArthur. The Longmont Museum is thrilled to be one of the only stops in the United States on the exhibitions international tour. Locally, the exhibition is supported by the Consulate-General of Japan in Denver.
