Minneapolis Satellite Reef
Part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef Project created by the Institute For Figuring

iff-logo-fullThis 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–Saturday, November 21, 2015. Reflecting on intersections between art and science, this exhibition is anchored by Leonardo’s famous Codex Leicester, the notebook in which the Renaissance master sketched his ideas about water both figuratively and conceptually.
