The Paper Farm exhibition has been seen by more than 1,800 first grade students in Orange County including schools from Buena Park, Garden Grove, Irvine, Newport-Mesa, Santa Ana, and Tustin Unified. Both students and teachers have been inspired by the artwork and installation.

Unfortunately, The Great Park had to cancel the opening reception on Sunday, May 4, due to maintenance repairs in the Artists Studios. The building will continue to stay closed to the public until May 31, 2014.

After several days of brainstorming, the staff was able to schedule and move the Paper Farm exhibition to the Irvine Fine Arts Center. The Paper Farm exhibition will be featured in the main gallery from June 14 until July 12, 2014 with a special opening reception on Saturday, June 14 from 1-3pm. The Great Park is reprinting marketing collateral and will post updated information to the website soon, but here are the basics:
