ESCHER. The Exhibition & Experience is the most important and the largest exhibition of M.C. Escher ever presented in the United States. The exhibition highlights Escher’s journey as an artist, from his earlier works of nature and landscape in the 1920s and 1930s to the figurative and abstract art developed in the late 1930s through the 1970s when he sought to explore infinity.
Escher, a one-of-a-kind artist, once said, “Wonder is the salt of the earth.” He broadened the imagination and perspective of generations of art lovers, through works in which everything is connected: science, nature, analytical and aesthetic beauty. The exhibit is divided into 7 sections: Early period and Italy; Tessellation; Structure of space; Metamorphosis; Geometrical paradoxes; Commissioned work and Eschermania.
Highlights of the sections include:
- Scientific experiments, play areas and educational resources for all ages to understand the impossible perspectives and dimensions used by Escher
- Photobooths where you'll be able to photograph themselves “inside” the worlds of M.C. Escher
- The “Relativity Room” turns normal size and scale on its head
- The “Infinity Room” shows your reflection infinitely
