Description: "Mathematical art" usually conjures up one name, Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher (1898-1972). Some might add the names of Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944), Salvador Dali (1904-1989), Victor Vasarely, or Frank Stella. But the realm of mathematical art is far wider and more diverse. For those in New York City, the Art & Mathematics 2000 exhibit offers a rich sampling of artworks inspired by mathematics, ranging from the gracefully curved sculptures of Brent Collins and tensegrity structures of Kenneth Snelson to the playful polyhedra of George Hart and the wavy painted grids of Doug Pedens.
