Op Art in America is now on display in the Hallmark Art Collection Gallery. In the late 1950s and early 1960s artists around the world became fascinated with the subject of visual perception.

The artists on view were featured in The Responsive Eye, a prominent exhibition of this growing international trend that was shown in the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965.
