The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef on display at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

A must- see.... The Hyperbolic Coral Reef Project, now on display until April 2011 in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, is a very worth-while trip for you and your family!
Hyperbolic patterns, known as the Fibonacci Sequence, are in many coral forms . This concept started with a group of women artists and mathematicians in Australia to begin a world-wide phenomenon that now has cropped up here in our country. Thousands of American artists contributed to this current display, which celebrates the beauty, fragility, diversity, and
importance of our marine ecosystem, hanging in the balance of our rising world temperatures. Please take your family to this amazing experience, grab lunch, visit the giant squid right around the corner, and see Harry Potter Deathly Hollows part one IMAX all in one place.
