Come explore Tang exhibitions through a math-y lens! Join us on Monday, May 1, from 4 to 5:30 pm for “Math Trails,” which students in MA 116: Math in the Museum created for the Tang’s current exhibitions, Parallax: Framing the Cosmos and Christine Sun Kim: Oh Me Oh My. This self-guided Trail allows visitors to explore the shows via a series of math problems that help expand the connections between math and art, and engage the works in a different light.
MA116: Math in the Museum is taught by Rachel Seligman, Assistant Director for Curatorial Affairs and Malloy Curator (and lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics). Math in the Museum: Art and Math Trails is the culminating project for students in the class. Working in teams, they developed the Trail’s math questions and solutions.
