I was a big fan of M.C. Escher when I was younger. I can remember when we were studied him in school and were all given assignments to try to draw something in his style. I failed miserably. But it looks like I may get a chance to redeem myself at the MC. Escher exhibit that's currently showing at the Museum of Science.

Inside the Mind of M.C. Escher, an exhibit of sixteen high-quality Escher reprints. Ten percent larger than Escher's jewel-like originals, these reproductions maintain the impact of Escher's carefully drafted alternative worlds while allowing visitors to examine them in greater detail. The collection of mind-bending artwork incorporates the mathematical concepts of symmetry, plane geometry, and spherical and hyperbolic geometry.


Within the gallery, hands-on activities invite visitors to explore some of the optical phenomena that fascinated Escher, such as tessellations and sphere reflections. Visitors may investigate Escher's 1935 "Hand with Reflecting Sphere," and will then have the opportunity to try the artwork themselves.
