The Art of Origami: Second Sunday Family Program at Historical Society

Tour Bush-Holley House and learn how Japanese artist Genjiro Yeto influenced the Cos Cob art colony. Before or after the tour, create an origami jumping frog, a colorful box or an origami tower.

Take a 20-minute, family-friendly tour of Bush-Holley House, learn about Japanese artist and illustrator Genjiro Yeto (who was often in residence at Bush-Holley House) and find out how Japanese art influenced Cos Cob art colony artists in many ways. To continue learning about Japanese art, families may drop in at the Vanderbilt Education Center any time before or after their tours and choose from three origami projects: a jumping frog, a colorful box or an origami tower.

Drop into family programs any time from noon to 4:00 pm. First tour begins at 12:30 pm, and last tour takes place at 3:30 pm.
