Much folding, bending, and shaping occurs at the Woodson Art Museum, I realized during a recent origami project. Rising Cranes – the newest addition to the sculpture garden – celebrates the paper-folding art of origami. Inspired by Rising Cranes, many Museum members folded paper cranes during the summer’s exhibition preview reception. It was a lively time for those who participated.
As I consider the Fourth of July, images of fireworks, sunshine, barbecued chicken, buttery cobs of corn, and strawberries fill my thoughts – with a soundtrack of laughter and children’s delight-filled shrieks.
