Origami art comes alive on big screen at Bowers Museum, July 16

Community Cinema crowd favorite, Between The Folds will screen in conjunction with the closure of the Bowers Museum exhibit: Japanese Masterpieces from the Price Collection, showcasing some of the very best screen and scroll painters of Edo Period Japan.

Award-winning documentary Between The Folds, by Vanessa Gould, chronicles the stories of ten fine artists and intrepid theoretical scientists who have abandoned careers and scoffed at hard-earned graduate degrees-all to forge unconventional lives as modern-day paperfolders.

Between The Folds will be screened on July 16 at 1:30 pm in the Norma Kershaw Auditorium (Bowers Museum, 2002 North Main Street Santa Ana, CA 92706).

Following the film will be an interactive origami folding demonstration with Michael Sanders sponsored by Origami USA.

Sanders is a 10 year member of the Westcoast Origami Guild and Origami USA, and for the last decade he has been entertaining children and adults alike with the magic of origami.

No RSVP Required. First Come First Seated. Guests that bring (3) or more guests have the chance to win a $25 gift card.

Community Cinema screening Between The Folds is presented by PBS SoCal (formerly KOCE-TV), Bowers Museum and ITVS.
