Into the Fold: U.S Currency in Origami



Come and discover the art and science behind the creation of origami made of United States currency in the Money Museum’s free temporary display, Into the Fold: U.S. Currency Origami. This collection of 26 unique works of origami art, created by Chicago artist Steve Robbins, is inspired by the platonic solids and features how these geometric structures can be transformed into beautiful works of art.

Into the Fold will be on display from August 16 - December 31, 2019 and admission is free.

In addition to viewing the origami, visitors will be invited to:

  • Learn about the history of origami and the science behind its design.
  • Pose and take a photo in our “origami forest.”
  • Make your own origami art.
  • Participate in an origami guessing game.
