Paper Blooms Project

Paper Blooms Project SM

January - March 2018

Olin Hall Galleries would like to extend an invitation to participate in the Paper Blooms ProjectSM. Individuals and groups can contribute to Paper Blooms ProjectSM by creating individual pieces for this collaborative and interactive exhibit.

The Paper Blooms Project is a collaborative based exhibition that will be composed of hand-made paper flowers to create a community garden. The flowers have been made by local and regional volunteers to unite and support the community through art.

Groups and individuals have been invited to participate by creating single or multiple pieces for this purposeful and interactive display. The installation will cultivate an educational experience with a bold and colorful display of a wide range of plants labeled with their botanical names. Within the space, there will also be a memorial garden, where individuals can create a flower to commemorate and honor a loved one.

Upon the conclusion of the show, flowers from The Paper Blooms Project will be made into bouquets and donated to areas of need within our locality. The Paper Blooms Project is an art installation created by our community, to be enjoyed as a public space, and returned to support the community.

There will be opportunities for creating paper flowers at group meetings on campus.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Talia Logan at 540-375-2332 or mlogan@roanoke.edu for more information.

Future announcements, events, and programming information regarding the
Paper Blooms ProjectSM exhibition will be submitted via email.

Flowers may be delivered at the workshops or brought to the gallery during our regular business hours.
Gallery Hours: 1-4 pm every day including weekends during open exhibitions.
Closed during school breaks and holidays.
