inside view The Artists of ArtBLINK The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center’s annual ArtBLINK Gala has become one of Birmingham’s most popular and premier events, thanks in large part to the ArtBLINK silent auction in which artists have 90 minutes to create works of art while guests watch. ArtBLINK would not exist without the artists who so generously donate their time and talents to us, and we would like to thank the following incredible artists for participating in this year’s event. Ahmad Austin Sally Waldrup Boyd Thomas Andrew Sam Collins Melissa Payne Baker Carol Carmichael Amy Collins and Robine Wright UAB has set a goal to be one of the most dynamic and productive universities of the 21st century and attain our vision to be an internationally renowned research university — a first choice for education and health care. This means setting priorities, investing our Joan Curtis resources carefully and inviting partners to join us in The Campaign for UAB: Give Something, Change Everything — the largest, most comprehensive fund-raising initiative in the university’s history.
