Final Culture Vulture event June 11

Culture Vultures learn the art of the double take by experimenting with their own optical illusions during Welcome to the Optical Jungle, the final Culture Vulture event of the season, Saturday, June 11.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the U of L Atrium, artists of all ages can find inspiration in the U of L Art Gallery's current exhibit, Spectramatic Geometry, and create a mind-twisting image of their own.

"Using multiple mediums similar to those used by the artists of Spectramatic Geometry, we'll create optical illusions that appear to radiate and move," says Rosalind Jeffrey, Culture Vulture program co-ordinator. "We'll play with colours to see how they react to each other and can trick both the mind and our eyes."

Promising an eye-bending afternoon of art, refreshments and fun, the June 11 Culture Vulture wraps up the series until September.

"We've been having so much fun with Culture Vulture," says Jeffrey. "We can't wait to present a new series of projects next year."
