Safilo’s American Eyes Exhibition for Spring 2017
Safilo celebrates the Spring 2017 reintroduction of its own flagship Elasta and Emozioni ophthalmic collections with a captivating exhibition in New York City called American Eyes. The exhibition is an homage to American opticians – celebrating the people, optical shops and landscapes they call home.
Timed to Vision Expo East, American Eyes, by Italian artist Gianluca Vassallo, is a journey of images representing a cross-section of America. The images by the artist Gianluca Vassallo show large expanses of cultivated fields, rural villages and characteristic optical shops where opticians work with love.
The eight Safilo accounts depicted in the exhibit are from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York and were selected for their unique locations and high regard for the Elasta and Emozioni collections which have filled an important niche in their practices.
In addition to the photographic images, the gallery exhibition encompasses eyewear from the Spring 2017 Elasta and Emozioni collections, interspersing the display of the introspective eye of the artist with the real optical devices used for vision correction.
