B&A Artists Create Origami Cranes for Japan
In the wake of the devastating March 11th earthquake and tsunami in Japan, five B&A artists have created original work to benefit relief efforts. The Selby, Tim Marrs, Ilovedust, Paul Oakley and Tatiana Arocha have submitted designs to One Thousand Cranes for Japan that can be downloaded and made into origami cranes. A donation to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund offers up a downloadable design with instructions for how to fold it into a crane.
The project is inspired by an ancient Japanese legend that promises that any person who folds one thousand cranes will be granted a wish. The project's creators hope that participants will display their cranes prominently so as to inspire others.
