Celebrating Optical Art 

Our local art institute, the Perez Art Museum of Miami, honored the work of Julio Le Parc, (born September 23, 1928) an Argentina-born artist who devoted a great portion of his life to creating modern op art and kinetic art. 

I am not an art aficionado, but I know what I like. I was always drawn to geometric designs and tonight I got to see a lot of it on the walls and on the fashion worn by many of the art patrons who attended the opening night.

In case you think you recognize the Julio Le Parc name, you’re right. Hermès collaborated with the artist to produce the Hermès Éditeur initiative, works of his art on silk scarfs. Hermès claims they are wearable masterpieces.
