This sculpture by DeWitt Godfrey, associate professor of art and art history, helped spur a research project about applying mathematical methodologies to art and design.

The Picker Interdisciplinary Science Institute recently awarded grants supporting collaborative research teams led by Colgate faculty members who will combine their expertise from across disciplines to address questions in science and mathematics.

“I continue to be impressed by the breadth of inquiry and caliber of proposals from our Colgate faculty,” said Damhnait McHugh, director of the institute.
