The Simons Center Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition titled the Iconic Wall: Milestones in Math and Physics. This exhibition is in conjunction with the Iconic Wall, a site-specific artwork displaying significant equations and diagrams in mathematics and physics. Originally carved in stone by Christian White, the work is based on a design by Anthony Phillips and Nina Douglas. The Iconic Wall is permanently installed in the Simons Center Lobby.

Celebrating this unique work, Milestones in Math and Physics features a historical timeline detailing the equations and physical diagrams on the Iconic Wall. Also showcased are videos about the making of the wall. Notably, some of the original Indiana limestone, superbly carved by Christian White, is on view in the gallery.
