The Art of Steel Origami
The Art of Steel Origami

Listen
AIR DATE: June 13, 2012

If you walk around Las Vegas and keep your eyes open, you might see a giant origami bird dangling from a light pole, or perched in a backyard.  But these aren't your typical origami birds - these are made entirely of steel.  They're the work of local artist Luis Varela-Rico, and he'd sneak up light poles and buildings to hang up his work anonymously before he got a gallery exhibit.  We talk to Luis about the magic behind bending steel, and watching his art take flight.
