The Mend Project’s third donation project, Spectacled will join Modern Art 2009, for a pre show. Spectacled, is a project dedicated to raising an awareness of the some 36 million people living across the globe, who are needlessly blind. The group is accepting used eyeglass donations, which will be a part of a larger installation- September 3rd in the Linen Building. Along with the eye wear drive, artists are being asked to create their own sight altering device. Handmade eyeglasses will be auctioned off and proceeds will benefit Unite For Sight.
Eyeglass donations can be made in room 114- Modern Art 2009. Donations can also be made at the Modern Hotel, Flying M Coffee House and Garage, The VAC and Trey McIntyre Dance Studios up until Sep. 3, 2009.
