The Demaine group at MIT build "self-folding" curved-crease sculpture to illustrate the powerful mathematics of computational origami design, and how material properties can be harnessed to produce desired foldings semi-automatically, all through the accessible medium of tangible art.  Their sculpture has been exhibited at over 20 art galleries and museums in 2013, including two highschool galleries.  In addition, the Demaines have given numerous talks about connections between art and mathematics, with specific examples related to folding and robotics.
