Description: Mid-Peninsula residents are invited to participate in a 1000 paper cranes community open-air art installation at the Art Ventures - A/V - gallery at 888 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park. Members of the public are asked to make paper cranes to install on the trellis outside the gallery. Information packets are provided at the base of the gallery with small paper cranes sent to WILPF from Ehime, Japan to help us commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings. They are a gift to volunteers who agree to make larger paper cranes that they will return to clip to the trellis with provided paper clothespins. Instructions to make the cranes are in the packets (call 650-326-1235 if there are no packets, and a link to an excellent instructional video:
If you have an instagram account, please post a photo of your cranes the hashtag #peacemenlopark or email the photo to Let us know by email when you'e installed them. There will be a drawing for the book A THOUSAND CRANES that includes 48 sheets of chiyogami folding paper. If you have questions, please leave a message at 650-326-1235.
Note: The trellis is quite high and we may need to hang the cranes for you as we get more cranes; in that case you can leave your cranes at my house - call the # above or send email to the WILPF address and we'll make arrangements for you to drop them off and we'll put them up
on the trellis for you. Everyone is invited to participate!
