What is it about?

Review of the 2015 Bridges Baltimore 2015 exhibit. The Bridges Organization oversees the annual Bridges conference on mathematical connections in art, music, architecture, education, and culture. Since 1998, Bridges has traveled to North America, Europe, and Asia, and has attracted participants from over thirty countries. The conference features invited speakers, full and short paper presentations, educational workshops, a juried art exhibition, and arts performance events.

Why is it important?

This article outlines the complexity and many challenges of dedicated scientific and artistic collaboration and the excellence of its esthetic outcome.

Perspectives

Each year, the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts invites a mathematician or an artist to review the Bridges' conference art exhibit. My perspective is that of an artist and an individual trained in the discipline of Visual Communication. Although the written word is not my medium of choice, I believe both disciplines and participants gain from the conversation. It is also a unique opportunity for the audience and the reader to get a better understanding of the process and effort put into the work and appreciate the quality and the significance of the outcome.
