Founded in 1995, Les Yeux du Monde (The Eyes of the World) is a Contemporary Art gallery located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The gallery maintains the highest standards, representing both established and emerging artists from the Central Virginia region and beyond.

Clark that evokes a soaring sculpture by Richard Serra.
