Are you with an Arts Festival? Science Festival? STEM/STEAM event? Or perhaps just looking for a good STEM/STEAM event activity? Check out our updated and improved Tessellation Exhibit, available for rent for your event.
"Tessellation" is the intersection of art and geometry. It's a nifty little branch of art that’s creative in it’s geometry and artisitic in it's filling of those shapes with characters. It’s where a shape (or a few shapes) repeat AND interlock with themselves in every direction. (You’ve probably seen M.C. Escher’s interlocking Lizards.) Our exhibit explores tessellation--what it is, how it started, how to appreciate a good one, and how YOU can do it.
It's a perfect sponsorship match for a STEM/STEAM focused business looking for community engagement!
