Through May 9, 2023, Madison Square Park will display more than 10,000 spring flowering bulbs as part of its newest art exhibition, The Geometry of Flowers. Featuring tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, fritillaria, and anemones planted to reflect sequences found in Fibonacci numbers, this seasonal exhibition explores geometric patterns found in both the natural and designed worlds. Fibonacci numbers can be found throughout nature including within the swirls of pine cone seeds and the curves of nautilus shells. 

Designs for The Geometry of Flowers were created by Stephanie Lucas, Jessica Kaplan, and Aiyanna Milligan. The exhibition is presented by the Madison Square Park Conservancy in partnership with the Simons Foundation and MoMath, the National Museum of Mathematics. While you’re there, you can enjoy the park’s ongoing public art installations that make up Havah…to breathe, air, life.
