Why and how did a group of undergraduate mathematics students and mathematicians create an exhibition in an art museum? In this presentation and chat with the public, UO Professor E. E. Eischen will introduce an aesthetic side of mathematics and a project to share it more broadly. Joined by undergraduates from the Math and the Creative Process class, whose works are exhibited in Creativity Counts at the JSMA, Eischen will survey this project's life, from its conception to its appearance in the museum (and its enhancement using approaches from improvisational theater). Q and A to follow. This event is for everyone! 

In addition to Eischen, presenters include undergraduates Hannah Cui, Chloe Miller, and Azusena Rosales Suares, as well as improvisor and STEM communications expert Heather Barnes. Creativity Counts is made possible by support from the Williams Fund and NSF CAREER grant DMS-1751281.
