Friday, January 6
6 PM – Reception for Artist of the Month Michele Paradiso
7 PM to 8 PM – Origami Demo: From automobile airbags to the "origami stent" used to open arterial blockages, origami principles have traveled far from your Grandma's duckies. Come hear Benjamin Levy, nationally known origami expert and creator, as he shows the truly amazing inroads origami has made into both science and art. At one point, origami devotees insisted that all models be folded from single squares of paper, without glue. Today, we see astounding modular creations - sometimes folded from hundreds of bits of paper, to totally realistic insects folded by teenagers (look out!), to origami techniques used to “fold” satellites into space shuttles.
