Eyes of the World Mosaic

Eyes of the World Mosaic
Join us in the exhibit hall for an interactive "Eyes of the World" art project based upon a work of art originally created during the 2017 Women's March in NYC in the name of equality for all. The mural, carrying the international message of the importance of vision and optometry, will be donated to a new school of optometry in the developing world. All attendees are invited to help create this permanent work of art which will forever offer a visual reminder of the significance of sight.

The support for this important project is generously sponsored by:
