10th Anniversary of the first exhibit
The Circle of Light Photo Project is an annual art exhibit of photographs taken by people whose sight was restored through cornea transplants. The exhibit not only educates the public about the impact eye donation has on the lives of our communities, but it also helps support the eye bank's mission through an auction of the photos from the exhibit.
We hope that, as a transplant recipient, you'll show the world the things you can now see and participate in this important project. It's a great way to give back and to help support the eye bank's sight-saving mission!
Well, we were looking forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Circle of Light Photo Project with our friends and supporters at the end of summer. Sadly, we won't be able to do that in person, given the uncertainty of gatherings these days. Nonetheless, the project's message of the impact eye tissue donation and transplantation has on our communities is vital to our mission.
Join us online the week of September 7 - 12 for the 2020 Circle of Light Photo Project. This year, we will still feature new photos ONLINE for the 2020 edition, as well as many photos from past exhibits. The public will be able to order prints of the photos or have them imprinted on a variety of merchandise. All proceeds will benefit the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank's sight-saving mission.

That is up to you! We suggest you really look around for the things that you had trouble seeing or doing before your transplant.
Maybe you have a favorite photo you've taken after your transplants. If not, we suggest going on a walk through a park or your neighborhood and look for details in the everyday things you see. Close-ups and landscapes all work. We've had everything from traffic, to food, to vacations. Be creative!
You can see some examples of past exhibit photos here.
Only selected photographs will be featured in the online gallery.
As many as you like!
