Call to Artists/ EMPTY BOWLS: Capital Area Food Bank

EMPTY BOWLS: Capital Area Food Bank
House of Artistry is pleased to announce the first "Empty Bowls" project in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) of Washington DC.

"Our goal for the first year event is to feed 10,000 people for one day."

What is Empty Bowls?

The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple. Artists create artistic bowls, then our guests are served a meal of soup or salad, bread and beverage using the Art Bowl they have purchased for a minimum donation of 75 meals = $25.

Guests keep their Art Bowl as a reminder that there are always Empty Bowls in the world that need to be filled. All proceeds from the sale of the Art Bowls go directly to the CAFB.


DLA Piper has graciously donated the use of the lobby in their incredible new building located at 500 8th Street NW in Washington DC. The building is in the heart of Penn Quarter, one block from the Verizon Center, Portrait Gallery, across the street from the Monaco Hotel with easy access to Gallery Place and Navy Memorial metro stations on the Red, Green and Yellow line.

We have an unconfirmed date of October 9th from 11:30am to 2:30pm.

***************HE WHO HAS THE LEAST GIVES THE MOST***************

Artists are constantly being asked to donate their artwork and do so all the time.

For this event artists donating 8 or more bowls will be invited to bring an original piece of artwork, of their choice, for sale during the Empty Bowls luncheon. The artist will receive a 50% commission and the CAFB will receive a 50% donation.

I will be approaching artists for artwork to be included in a special "Collectors Circle Table". Artists will receive 50% commission and 50% will go to the CAFB.


Artwork will be delivered to House of Artisty or picked up by Saturday, October 2nd or Sunday, October 3rd.
