A little rain on Saturday couldn’t stop the Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser from having its most successful weekend ever, with 1,445 bowls sold!
(At about 1 ½ pounds per bowl before firing, that’s over a ton of clay.)
That’s a record for this fundraiser, and we want to thank everyone who came out to purchase a handmade bowl, as well as the ceramic artists who made each one. This fundraiser goes to support our ceramics department.
Ice cream wasn’t the only thing happening at our booth — we also took the opportunity to expand our Community Canvas. Young artists, especially, took to the project, using paint, charcoal, and anything else to add their piece to the puzzle. The new Community Canvas, part of our 60th anniversary celebrations, will be installed at the Madison Annex and unveiled at Artfête in November.
And everybody who bought a bowl and ice cream this weekend was entered to win this bowl by Art League ceramicist David Flohr, which one lucky ticketholder is taking home.
Thank you again to everybody who came out!
