Origami literally translates as "folding paper." In English, we call that an understatement.

At its foundation, origami is basic. Anyone who can memorize a handful of folds can learn how to do it. However, within the rules of origami lie endless possibilities to create the sublime from a simple medium.

See what origami can be in the hands of a virtuoso at Boise Art Museum's new exhibit, Folding Paper. Showcasing 45 artists from Japan, the United States, Uruguay and Russia, BAM organizers wrote, "These spectacular works illustrate origami's transformation into a form of artistic, scientific and spiritual expression."

Try your hand at origami during a workshop for adults on Saturday, Nov. 14 ($30 members, $40 non-members) and one for teens on Thursday, Nov. 19 (FREE).
