LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A presentation at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln will examine the connection between quilting and mathematics.

John Sims, an artist with a doctorate in mathematics, will speak at the center on Nov. 7 at 5:30 p.m. Sims creates multimedia projects spanning the area of mathematics, art, text, performance and political-media activism.

Sims says became he interested in quilt-making as a conceptual device to advance his work in mathematical art. His presentation, “SquareRoots: A Quilted Manifesto,” is a series of 13 math-art quilts created in partnership with an Amish community in Sarasota, Florida.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
