Attendees pay a $10 donation and choose their own handmade bowl, which is theirs to keep. All of the proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to Freedom House community shelter.

Art Agency is a student organization that connects art students, networks with visiting artists and engages in related community service projects. The group recently welcomed Minneapolis-based artist Michael Sommers for a 3-day workshop and culminating public performance.

Empty Bowls was started in Michigan in 1990, and the concept later evolved to allow participants to keep their handmade ceramic bowls as reminders of the persistent hunger in the world. The event has been replicated in nations around the world with myriad local opportunities for educators, artists and students. For general information about the project, visit www.emptybowls.net.

In the news: WBAY stops by for delicious Empty Bowls event

Our taste buds are still thanking Art Agency and a handful of local restaurants for providing the delicious soups and chilis (Kavarna’s vegetarian version is a particular favorite here) at the core of UW-Green Bay’s Empty Bowls event Wednesday (April 3). Our kitchens are a little prettier since we took home the handmade bowls, and we’re already looking forward to adding to our collection next year. All proceeds from the annual event will benefit the Kingdom Come Food Pantry in Oconto Falls. It was a great day all around, and WBAY, Channel 2 stopped by for some of the fun: see story.
