Pretlow Planetarium Presents Escher's Universe

 

Old Dominion's Pretlow Planetarium presents: "Escher's Universe" at 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Based on the life and work of the multifaceted Maurits Cornelis Escher - artist, astronomer, mathematician, traveler - the show offers insight into his 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.

Admission is free and families are welcome. The show is suitable for ages 8 and up.
