Tour Description

During this activity-filled tour, the galleries turn into math laboratories as students explore concepts of scale, ratio, perspective, pattern, symmetry and proportion in artwork. In addition to investigating how artists in the museum’s collection have utilized math concepts, students will meet with art instructors to create their own mathematically-inspired artwork.
