"As humans, we have a fascinating capacity to visualize mathematics. Our analytical concepts can be visualized, written down in notation, and then shared as a logical and visual language for others. These creative issues from our minds are analytical expressions, and the visual process of rendering them is analytical expressionism. This is the world I explore while painting."

Michael Schultheis


The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at Washington State University in Pullman held a significant exhibition of Schultheis' work in 2019. He has been on view at the National Academies of Sciences, Washington, DC and was included in an exhibition at the Corcoran Museum, Washington, DC. Schultheis was interviewed on NPR's Science Friday program, and his paintings were featured in solo exhibits at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the Janelia Research Campus in Chevy Chase, MD and the US Embassy in Athens, Greece. His work is included in numerous private and public collections including the Tacoma Art Museum, Oregon Health Sciences University, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, New York, NY, and the United States Embassy in Bern, Switzerland. Michael was also the subject of a 2020 exhibition at the National Museum of Mathematics in New York, NY.
