The Shared Visions Art Exhibit
The Southern California College of Optometry annually presents the Shared Visions Art Exhibit at the Eye Care Center. This eight-year old, juried art exhibit features artwork from blind and visually impaired artists from around the world. Shared Visions celebrates the artistic achievements of these inspirational artists who continue to create in a visual realm, focusing on their abilities and talents. The Exhibit, one of only four such art exhibitions of its kind in the United States, is open to the public at SCCO's Eye Care Center at 2575 Yorba Linda Blvd., Fullerton, CA 92831 and is open during Eye Care Center operational hours for an 11-month period each year.
Selected artwork from the 2012–13 exhibit will be on display for purchase
at the Shared Visions Gala Auction and V-Awards. Artwork purchased from the exhibit will not be available to take home until the
conclusion of the 2012–13 art exhibit in August 2013.
