Visitors will sense Yume’s commitment to well-being in the first exhibition of its 2020 Fall/Winter season: 1,000 Cranes, 1,000 Dreams is an outdoor display of 1,000 colorful origami cranes made from folded paper and donated by the people of Tucson.
The exhibition draws on the Japanese tradition of Senbazuru, which holds that those who devote time and effort to make origami cranes see their most heartfelt wishes granted. Cranes will be flying from stone lanterns to stone water basins, perching on boulders and flocking on bamboo gates and fences.”
Yume Japanese Gardens opened in Jan. 2013 and is located at 2130 N. Alvernon Way. They were forced to close in mid-March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Senbazuru exhibit starts on October 15 and continues to November 15. Community members were asked to start folding these 1000 cranes on May 6, and completed the project by end of June, 2020, during the pandemic.
