Origami Holiday Tree 2014 Detail

The theme of the 2015 Origami Holiday Tree is Mighty to Microscopic Life 

An annual tradition, the delightfully decorated Origami Holiday Tree has marked the start of the holiday season at the Museum for more than 30 years. The tree will be decorated with handmade origami models inspired by items in the permanent halls, current exhibitions, and Museum collections. Volunteers begin folding in March to complete the hundreds of creations that will be displayed on the tree.

During the holiday season, knowledgable volunteers will be on hand to teach visitors of all ages the art of origami folding.
