Geodesic Sculpture Project for Children, April 5th, Ithaca, NY

Geodesics seem to be in the air this year. The Synergetics Collaborative will feature Building a Dome for Bucky's Birthday at their sixth annual Summer Workshop in July. And then I saw an announcement for another geodesic event in Ithaca, NY. Here are the details for that event:

At 2 PM on April 5th, 2008 at the Tompkins County Public Library in Ithaca, NY, local artist Josh Sperling will work with children ages 7 through 13 and their families to learn about and construct geodesic models. The models will be part of a large geodesic sculture Sperling built and will be part of the Library’s newest art exhibit.

This program is being co-sponsored by Cornell’s Center for Materials Research. It is free and open to the public, and it will be held in the Library’s Borg Warner Community Meeting Room.

For more information, please contact Adelle Leise (607) 272-4557 Ext. 276 0r 277.

What a wonderful project! I am a poet, and I first learned of Buckminster Fuller through a friend who is in engineering. I find Fuller's work quite poetic, really.
