Sculptor Gregory Booth and the Art of Math

Geometry teacher Gregory Booth has been expanding the minds of students at Kirkwood High School for the past 20 years. But during his own high school days, Booth was passionate about a very different career path: art. Despite a decades long detour into his other passion – mathematics – a deep desire to create never left Booth and he recently began sculpting again. Not surprisingly, a mathematical theme began to emerge in these new pieces and he began to share his work with his students as an example of how numbers create shapes which become art. After years of being an admirer and collector of the arts, Booth recently realized his life long dream with a sold-out solo show at SOHA studio and gallery.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
