In an effort to help our neighbors in need, VisArts will once again host Empty Bowls, an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. Tickets range from $25 – $35 and can be purchased here.Participants must register in advance for a time slot, and masks must be worn at all times. In exchange for the ticket cost, participants receive a bowl to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

This year, VisArts is excited to be collaborating with The Bullis School and its ceramics instructor, Alice Shih-Kahn. Her students will be creating special hand-built ceramic bowls for the event. VisArts welcomes their contribution to this community effort to provide our residents access to sufficient and nutritious food in a dignified and respectful manner.

All proceeds will support Manna, a local food bank, and KIND (Kids in Need Distributors), a local organization providing grocery cards to children in 26 Montgomery County schools to purchase food.

“Empty Bowls illustrates our belief at VisArts in the power of connected community – working toward an understanding of social issues affecting our region, promoting awareness of other perspectives, and fostering an understanding through the visual arts,” says Executive Director Alice Nappy.
