Grids are a network of lines that cross each other to form a series of squares or rectangles. They appear in everyday objects as well as, occasionally, artwork. What grids can you find in your home or in the world?
A game board for checkers, a crossword puzzle or a gingham shirt? One might also think of Manhattan's urban street grid, a plan that allows people to easily navigate the metropolis by counting the streets up from the bottom of the island. Someone else might think of window screens that keep mosquitoes and others insects out.
