This art exhibit featured a plethora of origami animals made in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
The exhibit highlighted the precision and technical skill of several "Epic Origami" artists who fold miniature to life-sized sculptures in a variety of mediums ranging from paper, aluminum, copper and canvas. Each artist’s individual ﬂair and style brought something unique to the exhibit that featured such creatures as cranes, rhinos, penguins and dragons. The paper splendors helped engage travelers about the origami art form, while creating awareness of endangered species in the ocean and on land.
