The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, which is currently presenting the exhibition “Paper Transformed—Origami,” will host a “Family Fun Day” on the museum grounds for children and parents on Sunday, April 13, from 2 to 4 p.m.
The amazing, lifelike representations of birds, elephants, frogs, and many other animals and wondrous forms in the folded paper of origami will surprise and delight children and adults alike. Families can tour the exhibition together and will then learn folding techniques to create their own origami masterpieces with artist Rachel Katz.
There is also an origami family guide available so that visitors can complete fun and friendly activities in the galleries, and a chess table with real origami pieces for families to play the game.
The museum’s “Family Fun Day” is $5, or free for Parrish Art Museum members. For more information, visit parrishart.org or call 631-283-2118, ext. 40.
“Paper Transformed—Origami” will remain on view through June 22. The exhibition was organized by Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California, from its V’Ann Cornelius Origami Collection. Bonnie Roche, AIA, is the designer/coordinator of this exhibition on behalf of Mingei International.
The presentation of this exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum is made possible, in part, through generous support from George P. Mills, Dorothy Lichtenstein, the Evelyn Toll Family Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts.
