Paint by Numbers," a new exhibition by artist Ruben Millares opening this week at Pan American Art Projects, is all about the little digits that power our world. You might not notice it at first glance, but the two works are made entirely of little numbers. 6 p.m. Thursday through November 11 at Pan American Art Projects, 6300 NW Second Ave., Miami; panamericanart.com. Admission is free.
When you think about it, nearly everything in modern life is made with numbers. Your smartphone is powered by computations upon computations, your favorite websites use algorithms, and the house you live in, the car you drive, and the cup that held your cafecito were all made using math. Now try some art made with numbers. "
