The Empty Bowls Houston Steering Committee invites artists working in all media to help celebrate the event’s 16th year by creating and donating handmade bowls for Empty Bowls Houstontaking place Saturday, April 4th, at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.  Since its inception, Empty Bowls Houston and Houston-area artists have raised enough funds for the Houston Food Bank to provide over 2.7 million meals!

Last year, over 1,500 bowls were donated in a variety of media—including clay, wood, paper, metal and fiber—and over 600 people attended the event.  While most bowls are soup sized and are offered for a $25 donation, larger bowls are very popular and priced accordingly.
