Kevin Box had a dream of opening a museum, gallery, educational space and artists-in-residence program when he bought land next to the Little Garden of the Gods along the ancient Turquoise Trail south of Santa Fe. So far, he’s achieved part of that dream, and when not overseeing installations of his art around the world, he's working on the remainder. He and his wife, Jennifer, are currently the only artists in residence, but their work is available to the public in a fascinating outdoor sculpture garden. There, Box’s pioneering methods for creating origami out of metal are on full display, in running horses, cranes and more. If you time it right, you might be able to see him at work.
To learn more about Origami in the Garden, Kevin’s backstory and the design of the home and studio in conjunction with the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, see the new book Rustic Modern, just released this month.
