Mathematical Beauty, Math is pervasive in the natural world as well as in objects made by people, from buildings to fabric. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, math shapes our lives and perceptions. Represented here are 10 artists inspired by mathematical ideas. They help bridge the gap between those who understand math and those who simply experience its beauty.
The sculpture “Clessidra” will be in show at the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. The goal of the annual Bridges Conference and Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) is to foster research, practice, and new interest in mathematical connections to art, music, architecture, education and culture. All too often, mathematics can seem disconnected from or even antithetical to these other topics. We believe that mathematics and art can inform and enrich each other, that there are great ideas waiting to be found in mathematical analysis and synthesis of art, and that artistic thinking and activities can enliven the mathematics classroom.
This year the emphasis will be on importance of instilling self-esteem, self-confidence and achieving success through developing personal style and signature look utilizing exclusive color combinations and methodology developed by internationally renowned designer, stylist and entrepreneur Jane Pennewell, taking fashion one step further from looking great top feeling great and becoming the very best version of yourself. National Press Club, Congressional Women Caucus, International Trade Center, Embassies Liaison, Washington’s diplomatic community and firms specializing in federal and state government relations, public affairs, and strategic communication have already confirmed their attendance.
Davide’s artwork will be in show at the Bella Italia Market in Washington DC.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the Bella Italia Market -- with the participation of Italian Embassy First Counselor Domenico Bellantone -- will be held at Casa Italiana at 9:30 am on Saturday, Dec. 1. The Market will be open until 6:00 pm on Saturday, with a Fashion Show at 4:00 pm. On Sunday, Dec. 2, the Market will be open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.
The sculpture “Clessidra” is in show at the Wills Creek Exhibition.
The Wills Creek Exhibition is a national juried exhibition of contemporary American art hosted by the Allegany Arts Council in its professional Saville and Schwab galleries in Cumberland, Maryland. Now in its 19th year, the Will's Creek Exhibition will take place November 3-December 1, 2018
2018 is the 15th consecutive year that an exhibition of mathematical art has been held in conjunction with the Joint Mathematics Meetings. All of the exhibitions are chronicled online at the Bridges Conference website (http://www.bridgesmathart.org). Robert Fathauer was the curator of the exhibition, and the exhibition website was prepared by Nathan Selikoff. The exhibition was juried by Robert Fathauer, Martin Levin, Vince Matsko, and Elizabeth Whiteley. The Mathematical Art Exhibition Awards for 2017, given to recognize works that demonstrate the beauty and elegance of mathematics expressed in a visual art form, were announced at last year’s meeting. “Fractal Monarchs,” by Doug Dunham and John Shier was awarded Best photograph, painting, or print; “Torus,” by Jiangmei Wu was awarded Best textile, sculpture, or other medium; and “AAABBB, two juxtapositions: Dots & Blossoms, Windmills & Pinwheels,” by Mary Klotz received Honorable Mention. This year’s winners will be selected at the meeting by a separate jury from the one that selected the artworks for the exhibition. Since this catalog was prepared in advance of the meeting, the winners are not identified here. The exhibition website referenced above will contain this information, though. This year’s exhibition includes the work of over 80 artists from around the world. In this catalog, the artists and their works are presented in alphabetical order, except for some small shifts to ensure that two artworks by the same artist are always presented on facing pages. We would like to thank the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America for providing exhibition space, furnishings, and logistical support. We would especially like to thank Christine Davis, Penny Peña and Annette Emerson at the American Mathematical Society for their efforts in connection with the exhibition and awards. We would also like to thank SIGMAA-ARTS for financial support toward the printing of this catalog. Finally, we would like to thank the artists, whose creative vision and effort continue to make these exhibitions a valuable addition to the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Robert Fathauer Nathan Selikof
Inspiration for children and adults alike
Hear from innovators about what sparked their ideas, what drives them to create, and the impact of their work.
Digital Fabrication and Art
Davide Prete, Artist and Director of CUA Digital Fabrication Lab, “The 3D Printed American Flag Project”
I will be part of the panel discussion: Innovation and Art in Making on June 21, from 11:00 to 12:00 at the Raybur Building that precedes the Capitol Hill Maker Faire.
Hosted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, in collaboration with the Congressional Maker Caucus, the panels will explore the new movement driven by hobbyists, tinkerers, crafters, and innovators that is changing the face of informal learning at community institutions and is breathing new life and innovation into American manufacturing.
