Escher Art Exhibit Tour
by Cola City Homeschoolers
Friday, May 28 @10:30 am
Come see this popular exhibit at Columbia Art Museum, exploring the works of M.C. Escher. Space is limited!
Images by artist Maurits C. Escher (1898–1972) fascinate audiences with their imaginative design, consummate draftsmanship, and dreamy visions. His mind-bending prints include subjects like infinite staircases, tessellating birds changing into fish and back again, and two hands drawing each other.
This is the largest private Escher collection on exhibition in the world, including woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, and mezzotints. You will see his best-known prints as well as lesser-known works, spanning his entire career from his earliest print to his final masterpiece. You’ll also get a glimpse into the artist’s process with a woodblock study and lithographic stone. Collection of Paul and Anna Belinda Firos, Athens, Greece.
Safety protocols for visiting the musuem: wearing masks while inside the building and staying within the capacities for each gallery (which are marked on the walls).
