Rubin Museum Invites the Public to Participate in The Lotus Effect, a Community-Built Installation

HYPERALLERGIC 
Lotuses grow in muddy, murky waters, rise to the surface, and unfold. They show us that transformation and beauty can emerge from challenging circumstances. In Tibetan Buddhism, this sacred symbol is associated with purity, awakening, transformation, and compassion, and appears in many works of art in the Rubin Museum of Art’s collection. For The Lotus Effect, the Rubin and origami artist Uttam Grandhi invite the public to fold a lotus flower and dedicate their origami creation to someone or something that has helped them overcome a challenging time. For more information, visit rubinmuseum.org/thelotuseffect. [More]
