Art and geometry: Exhibition features student art inspired by Einstein and Picasso

Visitors consider the artwork created by students in Francesco Fedele's Visual Arts and Geometry course at the Kai Lin Gallery Dec. 11. The drawings hung for one night at the gallery to celebrate the students' work in the class, which connected advanced geometry with art through the lenses of Einstein and Picasso.

There aren’t many engineering courses that include, as the final class activity, exhibiting artwork at a local gallery. Francesco Fedele’s students did just that Dec. 11, showing the drawings they created during his course this fall connecting advanced geometry with art through the lenses of Einstein and Picasso.
