Description:

ESCHER, The Exhibition & Experience- close to 200 original works and several interactive installations!
Plan a unique and interdisciplinary STEAM experience for your students. Students in grades K-12 can explore the magical world of the iconic artist MC Escher and his geometrically inspired "impossible" structures and designs. Escher instinctively understood mathematical and scientific concepts and was able to bring them to life through representations of patterns, color and design. Escher's use of symmetry, tessellation, geometric forms, and illusion can be applied to a variety of classroom topics.

Appointments are required for all school groups.

Mission Statement:

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898 – 1972) is world renowned for his enigmatic sketches and paradoxical designs, executed with incredible detail and mathematical precision to create and construct impossible worlds. Escher had a natural intuition for mathematical drawings, and was captivated by repeating patterns of interlocking tessellations, and the paradoxical representations of infinity. Exploring the intersection between art, mathematics, science, and poetry, Escher’s works have fascinated and astounded generations of artists, architects, mathematicians, musicians, and designers alike.
