Morehead State Ceramics Guild organizing Empty Bowls event

The Morehead State University Ceramics Guild and Rowan County Christmas are organizing an “Empty Bowls” charity event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the American Legion Post 126, 156 Old Cranston Road in Morehead.  

Empty Bowls is an international project that is organized by artists and arts organizations in local communities. Ceramic artists create and donate bowls to raise money to fight hunger, increase awareness for hunger-related issues and advocate for arts education. 

For a minimum donation of $10, attendees of the Empty Bowls event in Morehead will receive a handcrafted bowl, a serving of chili, dessert and a drink. All proceeds will go to Rowan County Christmas, a nonprofit organization where local social service agencies, churches, civic organizations, businesses and community leaders coordinate charitable giving and community assistance to families and seniors in need during the holidays. 

“I think that internal community spirit of a ceramics studio is a natural fit to seep out into the great local community,” said Adam Yungbluth, visiting assistant professor of ceramics at MSU. “A blind ask for money can be hard but offering lunch and a handmade piece of pottery is a no-brainer. For us in the Department of Art & Design and the University, it helps to further our positive impact in the community.”
