Call for Mathematical Art Submissions

For the eighth year, there will be a Mathematical Art Exhibition during the winter Joint Mathematics Meetings.  The exhibition will be organized and juried by the following:  Robert Fathauer, Tessellations Company; Anne Burns, Department of Mathematics, Long Island University, C.W. Post Campus; Nat Friedman, Department of Mathematics, University at Albany; Reza Sarhangi, Department of Mathematics, Towson University; and Nathan Selikoff, Digital Awakening Studios.

This exhibition will be held in Salon A of the New Orleans Marriott, located next to the exhibit hall and registration. Over five thousand professional mathematicians typically attend this meeting, so this is an excellent opportunity to get your work seen by people who will appreciate it.  Past exhibitions have been very well received, and the AMS and MAA feel the art exhibition has become a valuable addition to the meeting.

We plan to publish a catalog to accompany the exhibition. SIGMAA-ARTS, a special interest group of the MAA, has generously offered to underwrite the cost of doing so, as they did last year.

For the third year, there will be cash awards for the top three artworks picked by a panel of judges. This panel will be different and independent from the panel of jurors that selected this year's artworks. The Mathematical Art Exhibition Prize will be given and announced at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. First, Second and Third Prize winners will be awarded (US$500, US$300, and US$200 respectively) for aesthetically pleasing works that combine mathematics and visual art.

Mathematicians/artists interested in exhibiting their works should plan on registering for and attending the conference if one or more of their works are accepted.  Note that there will also be a paper session at the meeting on connections between mathematics and the arts, organized by Douglas Norton.

If you would like to submit your work, please visit the submission website,, where you will find detailed instructions. Please note that there will be a limit of two submissions per artist this year, in contrast to the three submissions allowed in previous years.

Submissions are due by October 15, 2010.  Notification of acceptance will be made via e-mail by November 15.

Artworks will not be insured while on display, though there will be security provided by the conference.  The artist must assume full responsibility for theft or damage.
