Op artists explored the principles of perception through the use of line, color and light, thus creating an optical illusion. Any artwork that suggests a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface is an illusion, but Op artists use abstract shapes and line to produce optical sensations free of subject matter.

The student curators were involved in planning the exhibition, which included selecting works for display, conducting research, writing and designing a gallery guide and an original logo for the exhibit.

“Into the Void” will remain on view through July 28 in the museum’s Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Photography Gallery. Admission to the museum is free to all visitors, thanks to a gift from the OU Athletics Department.
