SAN JOSÉ, California (June 15, 2017) — The San José Museum of Art will explore the connections between artistic and mathematic practice in the new exhibition Show Your Work: Art and Math, on view in the Museum’s Koret Family Gallery today through May 20, 2018. The exhibition includes artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection that exemplify how artistic and mathematic formulations inform one another and ways in which art and math are intertwined.

Show Your Work: Art and Math will feature work by Joachim Bandau, David Bottini, Ron Davis, David Pace, Lordy Rodriguez, Clare Rojas, Shirley Shor and DeWain Valentine.

“The Koret Family Gallery is a place for visitors to make observations, ask questions, and participate in creative experimentation,” said Jeff Bordona, director of museum experience and education at SJMA. “This installation reflects the math-focused curriculum for SJMA’s award-winning education program, Sowing Creativity, in the coming academic year.”



The San José Museum of Art celebrates new ideas, stimulates creativity, and inspires connection with every visit. Welcoming and thought-provoking, the Museum rejects stuffiness and delights visitors with its surprising and playful perspective on the art and artists of our time.

SJMA is located at 110 South Market Street in downtown San José, California. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 AM to 5 PM and until 8 PM or later on the third Thursday of each month. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6 for students, and $5 for youth ages 7 – 18. Members and children ages 6 and under are admitted free. For more information, call 408-271-6840 or visit
