An Origami Exhibition is set to open May 29th at the Okinawa Prefecture Museum and Art Museum on the occasion of the museumís 5th anniversary.

Admission is free to the Origami Exhibition to be held in the Okinawa Prefecture Museum and Art Museumís Okinawa Residential Gallery 1, open daily 9 a.m. ~ 6 p.m. (Fri & Sat. until 8 p.m.) through June 10th. The exhibition is sponsored by the Japan Origami Associationís Ryukyu Branch, Gettou Group.

The groupís membership includes 24 origami teachers who will organize several events regularly, including study meetings and monthly sessions. The Gettou Group invites famous origami teachers from across Japan, and holds origami lessons that are open to the public. The 24 teachers even provide origami lessons on request to local resident groups.

Each of the Origami Association members also gives origami lessons in order to spread the art of origami through classes at local citizensí halls, childrenís pre-schools, elementary schools, junior high schools, senior citizensí gatherings, day care centers, classes for special needs children, and even to personnel on U.S. military bases.

Creating origami is described as a form of communication. Conversation comes naturally into people who practice origami, says an association official, and wonderful human relations are born naturally as a result. The Japan Origami Associationís Ryukyu Branch encourages people to learn more about origami through the internet, including some origami history at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origami.
