ASB goes to Museum - Vasarely Museum Budapest

An interactive and expriential guided tour in English language for anyone age 6 -99      
Saturday, May 24th
 Victor Vasarely was a Hungarian-born French Op Art painter. He was best known as the "grandfather" of the Op Art movement of the 1960s. Vasarely was born on April 9, 1908 in Pecs, Hungary. He initially studied medicine, but soon abandoned the field to take up painting at the Podolini-Volkmann Academy. Vasarely went through a number of different styles before finding his groove in Op Art. During his start as a graphic designer, he was influenced by the artists of the Bauhaus and early Abstract Expressionism. He unstintingly took these principles to new levels of geometric precision and fostered the Op Art movement. His brilliant works went mainstream, in the forms of posters and fabrics. Not lacking in confidence, Vasarely used the proceeds to design and build his own museum in France. It closed in 1996, but there are several other museums in France and Hungary named after the artist. Vasarely died on March 19, 1997 in Annet-on-Marne, France.
