Today in History: California 31st state of the United States in 1850

Today in History: California 31st state of the United States in 1850

California had been only part of the United States territory for two years (following the Mexican-American War) when it was admitted to the Union as the 31st state of the United States on September 9, 1850. The second largest state at the time (until the admission of Alaska), California is currently the most populous U.S. state. Blessed with beautiful beaches, mountains, and stunning scenery, it is home to Yosemite National Park, the world class city of San Francisco and tourist sensations ranging from the Golden Gate to Disneyland.

Today in History: The Bikini

Today in History: The Bikini
Two small pieces of fabric caused major turmoil at the beaches at the end of the 1940s. French fashion designer Louis Reard gave them a name: bikini. The first bikini was presented on July 5, 1946 at a Paris fashion show. The rest is history.

Happy Birthday, Victor Vasarely

Happy Birthday, Victor Vasarely

The Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely (born: Gyözö Vásárhelyi ) would have turned 108 today. Born in Pecs, Hungary, in 1908, Vasarely began his artistic training in Budapest in the late 1920s. In 1928, he studied the concepts of the Bauhaus working under Sandor Bortnyk at the Mühely Art School. Vasarely moved to Paris in 1930 and became an independent graphic designer. His early work was characterized by strong black and white contrasts. In the late 1940s, Vasarely developed his own geometric abstract style exploiting the deception of the human eye using forms of geometry and color nuances to trigger striking spatial effects. This led to the formulation of the principles of the short-lived Op Art movement in the early 1950s for which Vasarely is probably best known. In 1970, Vasarely opened the first museum dedicated to his art in Gordes, France (it closed in 1996). In 1976, he founded the Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence (housed in a building designed by Vasarely). In 1976, the Vasarely Museum was established in the artist’s birth-town of Pécs. A second museum in Zichy Palace in Budapest followed in 1987. Victor Vasarely died in Paris on March 15, 1997.
