"Flight of Folds" is a collaboration between Kevin Box and Robert J. Lang, one of the world’s most renowned origami artists.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, May 19, 2015 - Origami means “folding paper” in Japanese. Origami in the Garden tells the story of this art form through a collection of over twenty monumental outdoor sculptures. It is currently exhibiting through October 24th, 2015, at the Turquoise Trail Sculpture Garden, 3453 State Highway 14 N., Cerrillos, NM (10 miles south of Santa Fe). Each sculpture is inspired by a blank piece of paper that has been transformed into museum quality metal and tells the story of creativity and the art of making something out of nothing. The collection was created by artist Kevin Box and includes his own compositions as well as collaborative works with his wife Jennifer and origami masters Robert J. Lang, Te Jui Fu, Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander. Admission is $10 per person, children under 12 are free.
 
The Turquoise Trail Sculpture Garden is a private residence nestled in the Little Garden of the Gods on Highway 14, a National Scenic Byway. With towering rock formations encompassing the three acre sculpture garden, visitors meander through a distinct southwest landscape discovering sculpture along the way. The environment creates a dramatic backdrop for this exhibition of stark contrast and unexpected harmony. The relationship between the white clouds and the predominately white artwork evokes a sense of lightness and peace.
 
"Flight of Folds" is a collaboration between Kevin Box and Robert J. Lang, one of the world’s most renowned origami artists. Lang folded one of the most complicated cranes ever made from a single, uncut square of paper. That's right, no cutting, no gluing and no tape! Box transformed this paper master piece into an eight foot tall cast stainless steel sculpture. Box states:
“Origami presents a simple metaphor; we all start with a blank page, what we do with it is up to us and the possibilities are endless.” Kevin Box
 
Kevin and Jennifer Box created Master Peace, a sculpture of over 1,000 cast metal cranes with 500 cranes gathered together in a twenty-five foot tall monument and the remaining 500 scattered into the world as individual pieces. The black granite base below the monument reflects all 1,000 cranes keeping them together forever in a place of peace.
