Reception will include light refreshments and remarks at 5:10 pm. The BU Arts Initiative and BU's Department of Mathematics & Statistics are proud to bring  Mathemalchemy to Boston University in collaboration with BU Galleries. Mathemalchemy runs January 4 to 7 and January 19 to March 4 at 808 Gallery (808 Commonwealth Ave. Boston). Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 am to 5 pm. Mathemalchemy is an art installation conceived by Duke professor Ingrid Daubechies and Canadian fiber artist Dominique Ehrmann.  A core team of 24 artistic mathematicians and mathematical artists, including Boston University professor Li-Mei Lim, came together to develop and fabricate the exhibit, which invites viewers into a beautiful and playful world of mathematics.  Through a variety of mediums and several narrative scenes, Mathemalchemy resonates with viewers on many levels and shows them that anyone can be a mathematician.
