“That brain of mine is something more than merely mortal;
as time will show.”
— Ada Byron Lovelace

Runs March 26 - April 12, 2020

"Forget this world and all its troubles and if possible its multitudinous Charlatans-- everything in short but the Enchantress of Numbers."

Ada Byron Lovelace is the woman you didn’t know to thank for our digital age. Although her dear friend Charles Babbage conceived the first “analytical engine” or proto-computer, she wrote and published the first program for it, an algorithm designed to be carried out by a machine. As she comes of age with a stern mother and in the shadow of a scandalous father, we see her brilliance in conflict with 19th century conventions.
