The Youth Initiatives team gathered virtually to visit the Museum’s annual Origami Tree. Since we practice social distancing and working remotely, using creative ways to meet and organize has inspired more ways of engaging with the #AMNHTeens family. We look forward to planning and creating spaces for learning and fun in the future.⠀
And, you may visit the real Museum Origami Tree! The theme of this year’s 13-foot tree is Cranes and Colors, featuring 1,000 brilliantly colored origami cranes, presented as symbols of peace and good wishes as New York continues to endure the many challenges posed by COVID-19, and drawing inspiration from The Nature of Color special exhibition, which explores the role and power of color in the natural world. 🎄
See the amnh.org/explore page linked in our bio to learn more about how to visit safely.
