A special tour of the exhibit with Presidential Award-winner Dave Masunaga

Sunday, January 20, 10:00 am
Monday, January 21, 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
Former director of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Dave Masunaga and MoMath have made special arrangements with Arthemisia, Italy’s leading art exhibition producer, to guide 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).
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

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.
