Lillstreet Art Center proudly hosts the 9th Annual Empty Bowls to benefit First Slice Pie Cafe!

The Empty Bowls Project is a nationwide effort by potters & artists to end hunger.

Join us Friday, April 15th from 5-8pm, for a meal of soup & bread from a handmade bowl donated by a Lillstreet Artist. Guests keep their bowls as a reminder of all the bowls they helped First Slice fill this year!  Volunteers are welcome – sign up here:

Bowls are $25 each, there is no limit to the number of bowls that can be purchased AND soup refills are unlimited (for one night only). Sales begin at 5pm on a first come, first served basis. There will also be a silent auction of donated artist-crafted jewelry, textiles, prints, paintings & drawings, glass objects, ceramics. AND local brews donated by Begyle Brewing!
