Fall at USU Means Chili and Chili Bowls
Monday, Oct. 22, 2012
The Utah State University Ceramics Guild holds its annual Chili Bowl Sale Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the patio of the Taggart Student Center from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Each purchase comes with a bowl of chili, donated by USU Food Services. Patrons will have the opportunity to browse a large selection of bowls and meet the artists. Prices start at $8, with both cash and checks accepted.
Funds raised by the sale are used to promote education of the ceramic arts through the financial support of the USU Ceramics Guild. Funds raised in previous guild initiatives have been used to purchase studio equipment, host guest artists and send students to the annual National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference.
“The chili bowl sale is an excellent opportunity to support the ceramics program at USU,” said Jonathan Christensen, Ceramics Guild president. “It is a great chance to meet the artists and find out about their work. They also appreciate the opportunity to leave the studio and connect with the community.”
The Department of Art and Design in the Caine College of the Arts affords its students an excellent environment for developing visual arts competency and serves as a regional center, providing cultural experiences for the university and the surrounding communities.
Join the ceramics guild members at the TSC patio for bowls, chili and conversation.
“We all hope to see you there,” said Christensen.
