ThrowathonThrow a bowl, feed a hungry human. Students with Lake Superior College’s Art Club and area artists will use their creativity to fight hunger throughout the region during an upcoming Throw-a-thon Dec.1-2.

This activity will support Duluth’s “Empty Bowl” project, an annual event held every spring to raise money for Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank.

The 18th annual Lake Superior College Throw-a-thon will take place from
9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday, December 1 and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, December 2.  Held in the ceramics studio in LSC’s Fine Arts building, the event attracts dozens of students and some of the region’s most accomplished artists to throw ceramic bowls for the Empty Bowl.

The completed works of art will be available at the Duluth Depot on April 16, 2018, starting with the “Sea of Bowls” preview auction event featuring regional artist bowls, and the “Empty Bowl” main event on April 17, 2018. The bowls will be offered along with a variety of delicious soups and breads that have been donated by area restaurants.

Area artists and community members are encouraged to participate. For more information, contact Cody Olander at or 218/733-6915.
