_T_he Cade Museum for Creativity & Invention announced that it commissioned renowned Dutch artist Noa Haim to bring the internationally-acclaimed Collective Paper Aesthetics Project to Gainesville, Florida. The Cade museum will join other venerable institutions that have commissioned the Paper Aesthetics Project, including the Tate Modern in London, National Gallery Singapore, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg, and Louvre Abu Dhabi.
On January 12th, and beyond, the Cade invites visitors of all ages to create and personalize their own foldable, 3D geometric, polyhedron structures in the main museum gallery. Through the PolyCade Project, visitors will experience the vital role that Polyhedron play in nature, science, engineering, math, architecture, art, and design, and once individual structures are created, they can be interlocked to form much larger architectural structures that will celebrate the collective creativity of our entire community.
The PolyCade Project was inspired by the architecture of the Cade Museum that is based on The Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Spiral, which have impacted art and design for centuries (including the work of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and many others?) Learn more about the PolyCade Project and its accompanying programs and events at cademuseum.org/polycade. In addition to exclusive PolyCade museum activities, the Cade Museum will utilize its unique iteration of the Collective Paper Aesthetics Project to exciteand engage students from schools across the community, bringing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) learning to life through a unique hands-on approach that encourages individual creativity and collaboration on a broader scale.
Noa Haim is the designer of Collective Paper Aesthetics, based on her cultural entrepreneurship and design studio of the same name. This world-renowned designer and architect graduated from The Berlage Institute, Postgraduate Laboratory of Architecture, in Rotterdam. Following a presentation of her graduate work, in the form of participatory activity at the London Festival of Architecture, the Collective Paper Aesthetics project was born. Haim’s work has received international design awards for her original, innovative multidisciplinary approach.
In 2004, Dr. James Robert Cade and his family established the Cade Museum Foundation to build the Cade Museum for Creativity & Invention in Gainesville, Florida. Cade’s mission is to transform communities by inspiring and equipping future inventors, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. Dr. Cade, a physician at the University of Florida, was best known as the leader of a research team that invented Gatorade in 1965. The Cade Museum is open to the public and located at 811 South Main Street, Gainesville, FL 32601. For more information, please visit CadeMuseum.org, or contact Ashley Bryant at 352-870-9809.
