July 27-31 - Acevedo exhibited two works in the Siggraph03 Artshow in San Diego, CA. The images are called David Acevedo and NuCynthesis. Acevedo: "The David piece was misspelled in the catalogue as Davis Acevedo, but it's sort of growing on me."

JANUARY

Victor Acevedo's illustrated article called Space Time with M.C. Escher and Buckminster Fuller is published by Springer Verlag in the book called Escher's Legacy; A Centennial Celebration. It is co-edited by Doris Schattschneider and Michele Emmer

http://www.moravian.edu/news/releases/2003/032.htm

As quoted from the Springer site: One of the most popular artists of the 20th century, M. C. Escher, leaves a rich legacy. The centennial celebration of his birth, held in Rome and Ravello in 1998, gave testimony to the keen interest and new insight into his work, and showcased a number of contemporary artists and scientists whose work is directly inspired by that of Escher. This book contains 40 of their articles, richly illustrated with original art works in addition to well-known and little-known works by Escher. A CD-ROM complements the articles, containing color illustrations of work by contemporary artists, movies, animations, and other demonstrations.
