MMR is Getting Ready to Blossom: Spring 2020 Updates

Making Math Real: Algebra II

Starting on March 7 and continuing through May 3: Making Math Real: Algebra II. After three years of preparation, the brand new 10-day course, Making Math Real: Algebra II will begin. With the course binder at 430 pages, this may prove to be the most intensive MMR course yet. We are very excited to present this new course to those who requested it and have waited so long for it to become a reality.

We want to acknowledge the commitment and hard work from the 20 people who made this new course possible. Their efforts in support of the “If You Build It” campaign provided the basis for David Berg to create the course, and we hope this new course will become a permanent part of the MMR series of courses.

For everyone who completed Algebra I, we hope you will join us for this vital new course in the MMR series.

Curious & Wonderful:
Selections from the Achenbach Vault

Now through March 22: David Berg’s artwork, “Buttes & Plains” 1995, is included in a current exhibition at the Legion of Honor museum in San Francisco entitled “Curious & Wonderful: Selections from the Achenbach Vault”. The exhibition continues through March 22.

The exhibition is an exquisite jewel of an installation (the installation is a work of art unto its own) in a very intimate space including works from artists across the centuries and around the world that also include such luminaries as Pablo Picasso and Toulouse Lautrec.

We hope you are able to visit the Legion of Honor and view the exhibition before it closes on March 22. It is located in the Reva and David Logan Gallery downstairs from the main entrance of the museum.

The Legion of Honor has free admission on Saturdays for Bay Area residents who show ID.
