A core group of artists who are also grateful patients at UNC Eye decided to give back to the faculty and staff who have helped them by establishing the program "Art for UNC Eye." This allows you the opportunity to not only own an original & beautiful piece of work from a local artist, but it helps support UNC Eye and its mission to provide the very best in Medical and Surgical Eye care.
Meet the artists who have generously provided pieces of their art to benefit the priority needs of UNC Eye:
