Georgia Southern University’s Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at is returning with the annual Empty Bowl Project this week. During this event, ceramics students work year-round to create unique bowls to be sold with chili for $10 each. All proceeds from the chili sale are donated to the Statesboro Food Bank, which provides food for families not only in Bulloch County, but surrounding counties as well.
Most of the art is done by students, but the ceramics studio will be opened to the public tomorrow and everyone is welcomed to attend the open studio sessions and create their own bowl.
The studios will be open Tomorrow, Sept. 25 from 2:30-5 p.m. in the Ceramics and Sculpture Building. Visitors will be able to work with experienced ceramics students to create and decorate bowls for the chili sale, set this year for Oct. 17 at the Rotunda on Georgia Southern’s campus. Last year, the project raised nearly $4,000 and for every dollar donated, the Statesboro Food Bank is able to provide the equivalent of seven meals to someone in need.
