Empty bowls

Three people from the pottery program at the Flint Institute of Arts examine bowls sold for $12 each during the Empty Bowls fundraiser at U-M­Flint. It raised $7,800.

For more than a decade, area artists have raised thousands of dollars for two agencies that serve the poor through the sale of ceramic bowls. More than 1,000 bowls crafted by students from the Flint Community Schools Fine Arts Department, the Flint Institute of Art and other local artists filled tables in the University Pavilion. The money is divided between the Shelter of Flint and the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
