PHOTOS: Hopkins Fills ‘Empty Bowls’
The annual event raises money for ResourceWest and ICA Foodshelf.
People flocked to the Hopkins Center for the Arts on Tuesday for the 15th Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.
The event, which runs through 7 p.m., raises money for ResourceWest and ICA Foodshelf. People from all over the community first got together for bowl-making events, some of which were taught by school art instructors and local students.
Attendees then make a free will donation; choose their favorite bowl from among 1,000s created by local artists, students and volunteers; enjoy a simple bowl of soup and bread and return home with the bowl.
There is also be musical entertainment, and professional artists have donated bowls and related art for a silent auction.
Last year, students, staff and community potters created 1,022 bowls—helping the event raise $76,117.
