I want to take a second and tell everyone about something cool that is happening in a few days in conjunction with the EKU Art Department. It's called the Empty Bowl Project, and it's a fund-raiser to benefit food banks and other hunger organizations. The kilns in the ceramics studio have been firing almost 24/7 since the semester began, and probably before that. Several advanced students and teachers have been making bowls by the dozen (actually about 800, from what I understand) for the Empty Bowl Project luncheon in Richmond. There was one in Midway last semester, which one of my teachers had told us about, but he didn't really explain in detail what was going on. The link I've provided is for the national organization, since there isn't a link for the local event in itself. If you are interested in the details for the local event, they are as follows: on Friday, February 25th, from 11am-1pm, at St. Mark Parish in Richmond, KY, you can get a simple lunch of soup and bread for $10. For that, you also get to take home the handmade bowl to use as a reminder of hunger in the world. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend, I don't think, since I'll be working in Lexington all day, but maybe I can manage to get enough time off to go over and eat lunch, then go back to work. Anyway, check out the website--it sounds like a very cool group to support. And there is a place on the site where you can find out if there are events happening in your neck of the woods.
