Insects, monsters, a dancer and a beaver are among the new residents of the Wiesner Student Art Gallery--and each is a marvel of engineered folding. All 27 entries from this year's Student Origami Competition are on display, including the eight winners of such prestigious awards as Best Miniature Origami and Best Movie-Inspired. The work will be on display through Nov. 30 in the gallery on the second floor of the Stratton Student Center. The gallery is open 24 hours a day.
