Pretlow Planetarium Presents Escher's Universe

 

The Pretlow Planetarium presents: "ESCHER'S UNIVERSE" Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 PM. 

Based on the life and work of the multifaceted Maurits Cornelis Escher—artist, astronomer, mathematician, traveler. We see Escher's use of mathematics, astronomy, optics, crystallography, and geometry to artistically explain very complex concepts addressed by Cosmology. The show also explores how Escher's visit to the Alhambra in Spain changed the way he understood the universe and had a great impact in his work.

Free admission - families welcome (suitable for ages 8+).
