An exhibit is literally taking shape at the U.Va. Art Museum these days, with visitors joining the process and testing their manual dexterity through the art of paper folding. In “The Paper Sculpture Show,” running through Aug. 14, artists and audience collaborate and explore the realm between two- and three-dimensional art in a new and inventive way. Twenty-nine artists were asked to design a paper sculpture to be cut out and assembled using basic materials. Visitors are encouraged to “complete the artworks” by cutting out and assembling the sculptures of their choice. The visitors’ creations remain in the gallery, resulting in an exhibition that is growing and changing throughout its duration. Above, Christina Adkins (left) and Erin Molina, attending the Four Star Summer Camp at U.Va., create a piece called “Binding Sites,” designed by Stephen Hendee. The museum is open to the public free of charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For details, call 924-3592 or visit the museum’s Web site: www.virginia.edu/artmuseum.
