Mathematics and Computer Science

Dr. Rainville standing beside one of his polyhedral sculptures. Dr. Russell Rainville, Associate Professor of Mathematics in the Division of Mathematics and Computer Science, curated Pictures: Polymath, an exhibit of mathematical art by both students and faculty in celebration of the 150th anniversary of UMF.He also built the panels upon which much of the art was posted.

The art was displayed in the Emery Arts Center for two weeks in March 2014.  Works of art included Dr. Paul Gies’ MAT 104 classes over a period years, Dr. Pam Mitchel’s MAT 104 class from Spring 2014, Dr. Margaret Wykoff’s snow images, countless Mathematics Hours posters, Dr. Rainville’s sculptures, and visualizations of rational maps by Dr. Dan Jackson and his students.
