15th Annual Empty Bowls Houston

Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns across the country to feed the hungry in their communities. Empty Bowls Houston is implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists working in various media, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and the Houston Food Bank.

For a minimum $25 donation, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists, then receive a simple lunch of soup and bread freshly prepared by the Houston Food Bank. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured at the event.

The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world.

Want the first choice of bowls?  Join us at the Empty Bowls Preview Party on Friday, May 17th from 6-8 PM to enjoy light bites, beer, wine, artist demonstrations, and the first opportunity to purchase an Empty Bowl.  Tickets can be purchased at the door for $50 each.
