Exhibitions

The Treemap Art Project now has 4 sets of 12 prints:

1) University of Maryland Computer Science Instructional Center, Third Floor

This was the original printing and was hung in August 26, 2013 at University of Maryland Computer Science Instructional Center, Third Floor. The original plan was for it to hang for two months, but overwhelmingly supportive comments have led to it being a permanent exhibit.
