Celebrating 15 Years of Empty Bowls

The Empty Bowls Project is an important  civic engagement component of the ARTS 230 wheel throwing course. Each spring, students study clay traditions while collectively creating bowls; sharing in the work of throwing, trimming, and glazing. Bowls are then used at a community meal held in the middle of campus. Over the years, participants have donated thousands of dollars to the local food shelf.

The 2019 Empty Bowls Project Community Meal is Friday, May 17 from 11:45 am–1:15 pm on the Bald Spot.
