A big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate student work and support our Empty Bowls project at our annual art show. Participants enjoyed a humble bowl of soup and took away a piece of the ceramic bowl installation made by students to raise awareness and funds for the UN World Food Programme. If you missed the opening, the show will continue to be exhibited to the public until June 2nd and bowls are still available with donation.
