The Botany of Math exhibit in The Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture was truly captivating. While I will admit that I don’t have much experience with fine art to compare it to, I was pulled in by the relationship between metal and nature and the patterns they displayed. The artist, Suzie Mathre, the architect of this exhibit, is a Bozeman artist who was influenced by her mother who was a botanist. This relationship is apparent as different plants are integrated into the otherwise manmade materials used in the art. My personal favorite piece in the exhibit is called Rocky Mountain Juniper. It is a bridge of wood rounds with a magnifying glass that arches over the top, allowing the viewer to see the small details and differences in each section of the bridge . Overall, I would encourage anyone to visit this exhibit. It would be a great way to destress during the end of the semester.
