Box presented to Mobius Performing Group on the occasion of its 13th anniversary 1990-02-17

Box presented to Mobius by Boston-based artist Ronald Wallace, with the following message:
"This box was presented to the Mobius Performing Group on the occasion of its 13th Anniversary. It contains artifacts and documents relevant to the subject of the Mobius strip and its discoverer, Augustus Ferdinand Mobius. These materials were assembled for the purpose of exploring the relationship between a significant geometrical abstraction which symbolizes the forefront of mathematics and its namesake, an organization of artists whose purpose is to encourage the creation and presentation of art that is challenging and innovative. It is the fervent hope of the undersigned that the contents of this box will be the fertile seeds of further interest and study by members of the Group and its many supporters." - Ronald Wallace, February 17, 1990
