Be an origami museum exhibitor in The Origami Museum
, founded and led by artist and teacher, Lisa B. Corfman. Corfman announces Maynard Folds, a virtual origami exhibition contest – come exhibit in the upcoming Origami Museum Community Gallery. The origami museum welcomes EVERYONE to submit from children and adults, and from novices to experts to be in the spotlight.
Entries can be anything you can do, neatly folded, nicely presented (with fitting paper used, etc.), without cutting, gluing, or drawing on the model. Just share something you are happy with for fame in the origami museum’s online gallery. Don’t fret, just enjoy and do your best. Origami can be simple, fun, or even amazing. A personal note with questions, comments or concern is always welcome.
All contestants who submit will exhibit within the origami museum website, receive a certificate of participation, have a mention on Instagram and Facebook and receive a selection of origami paper. Awards for one top child and one adult winner features a certificate of honor, a solo Instagram and Facebook post and an online membership to OrigamiUSA.
