The purpose of the SIGMAA-ARTS is to support and encourage the interest of MAA members in the connections between mathematics and the arts including, but not limited to, the visual arts, sculpture, architecture, origami, textile and fiber art, literature, drama, dance, music, multimedia art and digital art. The SIGMAA-ARTS will pursue this purpose by encouraging the awareness of, pedagogy in, and interdisciplinary research and publication in the areas of mathematically inspired art, the use and role of visualization in mathematics, applying mathematics to analyze art and/or the creative process, and mathematics as art.
