Souper Bowl 2021
February 5 @ 3:00 pm - February 6 @ 2:00 pm
We are calling an audible this year and pulling the soup from our Souper Bowl, but there will still be plenty of opportunities to celebrate a win! Rather than sharing a meal during this year’s Souper Bowl, we are mixing things up with a Buy a Bowl, Fill a Bowl event. Soup (or other non-perishable) donations will be accepted in support of local food bank, Just Food. Donate an item and receive a $1 discount on any bowl – up to $3!
Our artists have been hard at work making gorgeous bowls and platters worthy of your festive (or casual) home gatherings and sponsorship by T-Mobile has made this community event possible.
Bowls will be available for purchase during the event on February 5 & 6.
Platters are currently on display at the Arts Center. Online bidding begins at 5pm Friday, Jan. 15, and continues through 2pm Saturday, Feb. 6.
No one should go home empty handed with original, custom-made ceramics starting at just $10!
All bowl and platter purchases support visual arts programming at the Lawrence Arts Center. Food donations help Just Food continue to provide support for thousands of Douglas County residents who face hunger every day. Just Food’s current most needed items list includes: tomato products, low sodium and low sugar canned fruits and vegetables, whole grain cereals and pastas, diapers (sizes 5 & 6).
To allow us to come together while remaining safe and socially distanced, participants will be required to sign up for limited capacity time slots. This will enable our staff to maintain a safe occupancy load within the building while allowing your party up to 30 minutes to shop.
As a special bonus, this year’s highest bidder will receive a custom charcuterie tray courtesy of Lawrence’s own Rad Platter.
This year’s contributing artists include:
Lauretta Hendricks Backus
Matthew Willie Garcia
Cole S. Heck
Helen Tilley Martin
Margaret Alexandra Weisbrod-Morris
Hong Chun Zhang
Lawrence Arts Center preschool and kindergarten students
