CALUMET -- The conclusion of this year’s Empty Bowls Project at the Calumet Art Center will coincide with a Silent Auction Fundraiser from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24.

The Empty Bowls Project is a year-round open project at the Calumet Art Center. Bowls of several sizes are still available in the studio, each with suggested donations of $10, $20 (average sized) to larger and more decorative bowls ($45 - $70). Any would make a colorful addition to your decor! Your donation will be reciprocated with a meal of savory soup and hearty bread at this event.
