Bryan Roarke used the theme of MathAwareness Month, Mathematics and Art, to show people that mathematics ismore than numbers. Joe Gallian, who is leading the efforts for Math AwarenessMonth this year, and Joe Malkevitch, who writes the monthly Feature Column for the AMS, are bothquoted in the article. Roarke's piece also includes the artwork from the MathAwareness Month poster, which was designed by Douglas Dunham and based on anillustration of M.C. Escher. Following publication of the article, many peoplecalled or visited the AMS to obtain copies of the poster.
