Japanese American National Museum

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Japanese American National Museum is one of the nation’s premier culturally specific museums. Through the building of a comprehensive collection of material culture and development of multi-faceted exhibitions, educational activities, public programs and publications, the Museum preserves and shares for current and future generations the rich and diverse stories of Japanese Americans for national and international audiences alike.

This award will provide exhibition support for “Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami,” which will include approximately 15 conceptual works and installations that will expand the visitor’s appreciation of the compelling contemporary art form of origami.   The exhibition is planned for May 2016 through August 2016.
