PEORIA, Ill. -- Paper is the new exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. It’s entitled, "Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami."
Origami dates back to 6th century China and Japan and the art of paper folding began shortly thereafter as a ritual.
Origami folding has been a big influence on modern technology, science and design since the mid-20th century.
The exhibit features the work of San Francisco artist Linda Tomoko Mihara, a third-generation Japanese-American.
"I think everyone's hand some experience with origami, whether they learned to do a jumping frog when they were little, or even as simple as a paper airplane, That's also origami,” she said.
The Folding Paper exhibit opens at the Riverfront Museum on Saturday and runs through April 27.
