The Origami Crane Tree

Cranes waiting for their big debut!
Recently my friend Piper approached me about helping her with a project.  Piper's idea was to surprise our high school with a temporary art instillation of a Crane Tree.  All of our friends and some dedicated classmates got busy folding; in the end we made 341 origami cranes!  We strung them on Saturday and hung the cranes on a tree near the entrance of our school on Sunday.  As students and teachers arrived on Monday they were surprised by the colorful fluttering folds floating in the tree.  These cranes were created to bring students and teachers good luck during finals week, and to bring a smile to the faces of those who pass by.  Piper's idea inspired us... What a peaceful way to end the school year.  Thank you to Caroline Aaron for capturing the beautiful images of the crane creation!  Looking forward to doing more public art installations next year!  Keep your eyes open and don't MIS the public art that surrounds us.
