Psychedelic: Optical and Visionary Art Since the 1960s
October 17, 2010–January 2, 2011 in the Grand Gallery
From Op Art in the 1960s to the current explosion of dazzling abstraction, this nationally touring exhibition traces the development of a “psychedelic sensibility” in the art of the past 40 years. Organized by the San Antonio Museum of Art, Psychedelic showcases figurative and abstract works characterized by intense color and vivid imagery. The artists include such modern masters as Frank Stella, Deborah Remington, Robert Williams, Fred Tomaselli, Victor Vasarely and Ray Rapp.
This exhibition is organized by the San Antonio Museum of Art with generous support from SAMA Contemporaries, Jerry Gore, and the Toby Devan Lewis Philanthropic Fund of The Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland. In Rochester, it is made possible by Richard F. Brush, with additional support from the George D. and Freida B. Abraham Foundation, The Philipson Group and ESL Federal Credit Union.
