Hidden in the northwest corner of the Broadway-Edison Building of Seattle Central College is the School of Opticianry. This Allied Health Program has been providing vision care and quality opticianry education to the Seattle Central College community for over 35 years. Starting May 11th through May 29th there will be clinical artifacts and artwork from all mediums displayed at the M. Rosetta Hunter Art Gallery. This art show seeks to share the science, fashion, history and art of opticianry. Current opticianry students and faculty in the program will be submitting their works to help foster enthusiasm for their field and to educate the public as to what opticians do.
