Central Library January 2003
This exhibit - display was available for viewing by the public & patrons of the main library in Pasadena, California. My desire was to acquaint, educate, and share the beauty & diversity of the art of origami.

The display was designed to have "something" for everyone to see - for small children to adults, for the beginner to the advanced folder, for those who want to fold for fun, to those who teach or use origami in the medical professions.
Selected displays are also intended to enourage library patrons to use the resources available at the library to explore the topic. I used all my own books in the display, but viewers were encouraged to use the books & computers at the library to learn more about the art of origami.
Everything in the display is from my own personal folding and collection of origami and materials. Some items I folded special for this display and still I did not have room to display as much as I would like. But it covered a broad representation of the wonders of the art of origami and was a big success for the library. Every origami book was checked out by the end of the first week of the display. Watching the visitors to the library read and see the display was a treat and made this endeavor a very rewarding experience for me as an artist.
