Mathematical Art Exhibition

The Mathematical Art Exhibition is organized by Robert Fathauer, Tessellations Company, and Nathan Selikoff, Digital Awakening Studios, and supported by the Special Interest Group of the MAA for Mathematics and the Arts, and the Bridges Organization. A popular feature at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, this exhibition provides a break in your day.

On display will be works in various media by artists who are inspired by mathematics and by mathematicians who use visual art to express their love of mathematics. Topology, fractals, polyhedra, and tiling are some of the ideas at play here. Do not miss this unique opportunity for a different perspective on mathematics. The exhibition will be displayed virtually at In addition, a Zoom reception during the meeting is planned (details to be provided later).

Three entries will be recognized with cash prizes. These are funded through an endowment provided to the AMS by an anonymous donor, who wishes to acknowledge those whose works demonstrate the beauty and elegance of mathematics expressed in a visual art form.

The deadline for submissions is October 15:
