Math & Art Converge in Bradenton Exhibit
(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 18, 2007) - Math and art converge in a "JohnSimsProjects" exhibit that continues through Nov. 8 in the fine art gallery , building 9A, MCC Bradenton, 5840 26th St. West.
Artist, mathematician and activist John Sims is known internationally for his sometimes controversial work in mathematical art, ethno-mathematics and visual mathematics. Through his art, Sims illustrates abstract concepts of numbers and how numbers and formulas look. In one highly publicized example, Sims used the geometry of the Confederate flag to make a political and artistic statement.
The MCC exhibit will feature depictions of six versions of the Confederate flag in black, green and red, the colors of the African flag, on what resembles the Florida presidential election ballot of 2000.
Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Joe Loccisano, gallery manager, by calling (941) 752-5225 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For directions, visit the MCC Web site at mccfl.edu/maps.
