The Museum Herakleidon presented an exhibition of works by M.C. Escher
and V. Vasarely

The works were chosen along the theme of “Art and Mathematics”, a gate that the Museum Herakleidon opened when it was founded in 2004 and that it holds wide open, both for the general public and the education community. It has already been announced that the founders of the museum, Paul
