Three Black Butterflies

It turns out that I am an Origami Master.  Those three beautiful black butterflies were all created by me.  Give it a try and test your skills with a square sheet of paper.  The event today was called the 1,000 Cranes Origami Festival.  It was a great idea for an event, and the Asian American Resource Center was packed with other skilled Origami Artists working their magic.

Why should I visit the Asian American Resource Center, you might ask.  Well, they have many cool events like the Peking Opera performance this afternoon.  And if you get there before July 31st, you can see the photo exhibition by Ali Khataw called “Faces of Humanity”.  These are some powerful portraits from around the world.  If you are not near Austin, then at least check out his website to view his amazing photography.
