Episode 149: You can’t deny that eyes are the window to the soul. Today I go on-site to see Bree Stallings’s solo exhibition, To be Seen & Celebrated. Bree & I chat about the project behind the exhibition, where she was commissioned to paint 100 individual eyeballs in memory of a loved one.
Bree gives a percentage of it to the residents Brookhill Village, an affordable housing community in Charlotte, for eye exams & glasses.
