Dear Lindlay

You may have seen my earlier email about a MathArt competition which now has
entrants from 6 countries.

The idea is that participanty countries will exchange entries so that there
can be a wordlwide network of international MathArt exhibitions.

Please put this to your NCTM committee - we would be delighted to have them
on board!


PS: Anyone esle who is interested too, in the USA or elsewhere, please
contact me also.
