At the annual Tempe Empty Bowls event (and @tempeemptybowls on Instagram), a $10 purchases a bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread, symbolic of the caloric intake that must sustain many in our community for an entire day.
The 2019 Tempe Empty Bowls will be held two days from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Friday, February 22 at 6thStreet Park (just south of City Hall in Downtown Tempe), and
Saturday, February 23 in the Tempe Library Plaza, Courtyard, 3500 S. Rural Rd., between Tempe Public Library and Vihel Center buildings on the southwest corner of Rural and Southern.
Hand-crafted bowls, planter pots, mugs, necklaces, platters and vases, made by potters at the City of Tempe Ceramics Program, local artists, and children ranging from elementary to high school students, will be available for purchase.
Sponsors include: Ramsey Social Justice Foundation, As You Wish Pottery, Whole Foods Market, LS Branding, Printing Specialists, Laguna Clay Company, Marjon Ceramics Inc., teamworks communication, Text Aim, the Bridget Cherie Harper Scholarship Fund, and the Daily Jam/NCounter.
