Go To the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art at 7 p.m. Feb. 12 for an unique look into the art and science of color theory with Julie Oppermann. Learn what it suggests to consider vision as an active procedure in the brain, not just the eye.
Informed by Oppermann’s neuroscience background as well as her active international painting practice, this presentation will discuss everybody from 19th-century French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul to Op Art’s Bridget Riley as we travel through the history of color theory in Europe and its journey to the U.S.
. This talk will become part of a series of lectures and workshops by artists in our spring 2018 exhibit “Plural.”
This occasion is free and available to the general public.
