This summer, MIA is excited to exhibit the Institute For Figuring’s worldwide Crochet Coral Reef project as part of the special exhibition “Leonardo da Vinci, the Codex Leicester, and the Creative Mind”, on view June 21–August 30, 2015. Reflecting on intersections between art and science, this exhibition is anchored by Leonardo’s famous Leicester Codex, the notebook in which the Renaissance master sketched his ideas about water both figuratively and conceptually.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the MIA is inviting the community to participate in the making of a Minneapolis Satellite Reef, part of the Institute For Figuring’s ongoing Satellite Reef program. Over the next six months, citizens of the Twin Cities and beyond are invited to create crochet coral to contribute to the reef. Organized by MIA and created by the community, the Minneapolis Satellite Reef will be exhibited at the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization Community Facility (MWMO) August 24– September 30, 2015.
Submission Deadline: Friday, July 31, 2015
