Escher: The Exhibition and Experience — Saturday
A special tour of the exhibit with Dave Masunaga
Saturday, July 14, 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
Dave Masunaga and MoMath have made special arrangements with Arthemisia, Italy’s leading art exhibition producer, to lead participants through the American debut of Escher: The Exhibition & Experience, an exhibition of over 200 works by the iconic Dutch artist M.C. Escher, which is currently on display in Industry City, Brooklyn. The exhibition is curated by Mark Veldhuysen (curator of the M.C. Escher Foundation Collection for over thirty years) and Federico Giudiceandrea (one of the world’s foremost collectors of, and experts on, the art of M.C. Escher).
You can learn more about the exhibition at eschernyc.com.
Masunaga’s connection with Escher stems from studies with his graduate mentor Dr. Arthur Loeb, the first person to bring M.C. Escher to the United States, and his friendship with George Escher, M.C. Escher’s eldest son. In addition, for many years Masunaga has worked closely with the curators of the Escher pieces at the National Gallery of Art.
Brief Bio of Dave Masunaga
For more than 35 years, Dave Masunaga has been balancing the full-time demands of the middle and high school mathematics classroom with research and leadership in mathematics and education, including a focus on the relationship between these areas and the visual and performing arts. Masunaga was a director of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and he has given hundreds of public talks on mathematics and mathematics-related areas to both general and technical audiences.
