The 18th annual Lake Superior College Throw-a-thon features students from LSC’s Art Club and other artists from the region creating ceramic bowls for the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank. The event is held in the ceramics studio in the LSC Fine Arts building. Community members are encouraged to participate. Clay and materials are provided.
This activity will support Duluth’s Empty Bowl project, an annual event held every spring to raise money for Second Harvest. College officials estimate the Throw-a-thon has produced more than $155,000 worth of bowls for the Empty Bowl over the past 17 years.
The completed works of art will be available at the Duluth Depot on April 16, starting with the Sea of Bowls preview auction event featuring regional artist bowls, and the Empty Bowl main event on April 17. The bowls will be offered along with a variety of soups and breads that have been donated by area restaurants.
Area artists and community members are encouraged to participate. For more information contact Cody Olander at cody.olander @ lsc.edu.
The proceeds from the “Empty Bowl” support the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, the sole distributor of surplus food products to over 140 charitable food programs, including the region’s soup kitchens, food shelves and shelters. As a nonprofit food bank, its primary role is to provide food to the front-line charitable agencies that offer meals to the hungry. The food bank also provides food to over 1,000 people per month as part of their direct service programming.
