Hear about the complexity and depth of optic art and GUILDit’s ‘Venture Into Optics’ Exhibit at the Johnson County Library Central resource. Panelists will discuss taking risks and navigating ideas, as well as giving insight into audience questions on this captivation art style.
 
They will give insight on how optic art in the exhibit and in general is playful and mindblowing, has structure yet seems random, that has depth in visuals as well as meaning. The panel discussion will be held in the gallery among amazing optic pieces. The library’s ‘Venture Into Optics’ exhibit has pieces by nationally and internationally known artists Barry Anderson, Jose Faus, Nathan Neufeld, Mol Mir, Miguel Rivera, and Hunter Saxton that are a collection of abstract video, 2-D mix-media, and 2-D sculpture, as well as 3-D printing works.
