The UMFA is celebrating the intricate art of paper engineering with the exhibition, The Art of Robert Sabuda: Travels in Time and Space, on view through September 9. A best-selling author, Sabuda is recognized as one of the world's leading pop-up paper artists and engineers. His detailed paper sculptures, dazzling in their color schemes and mechanics, bring both classic and original stories to life.
