Spring Color Showcase

Spring, 2016
A dazzling celebration of spring! More than 100,000 tulips, narcissus, crocus, hyacinth and other vibrant stars of the season fill the Conservatory’s gardens and courtyards with color.

Origami in the Garden

May 21–November 13, 2016
Origami in the Garden is a monumental sculpture exhibition created by American artist Kevin Box. Motivated by the impermanence of paper, Box pioneered a new method of capturing its delicate detail into museum quality metals. Origami is the art of paper folding and each sculpture began with a single piece of paper. The exhibition features gallery works and collaborations with internationally respected origami artists such as Dr. Robert J. Lang and Te Jui Fu.  Related programs for all ages are scheduled throughout the exhibition.
