UE Clay Club to Host Annual Chili Bowl Sale on October 29

Posted: Friday, October 22, 2021

The UE Department of Art and Clay Club will host the annual Chili Bowl Sale on Friday, October 29, 2021 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will be held in Eykamp Hall, located inside Ridgway University Center off Walnut Street.

For $10, customers can buy one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls with the option of filling it with chili. To-go containers will also be available. Chartwells, the food service provider of UE, is co-sponsoring the event and providing chili. Chef Brown will be serving his own unique recipe. Larger bowls will be for sale from $15 to $50, and a silent auction will have artistic bowls on display, with price ranges from $75 to $125. Customers may purchase up to eight chili bowls, and cash or check (made out to UE Clay Club) will be accepted.

"A lot of hours went into creating these unique ceramic bowls," said Todd Matteson, chair of the Department of Art and Clay Club advisor. "The artists dedicated a lot of energy and hard work. I feel blessed to have such a wonderful group to work with on supporting such a great cause."

The bowls are made by members of the Clay Club as well as UE students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the Evansville community. This year one hundred precent of the sales will go to St. Vincent de Paul's Food Pantry. The Clay Club chose this organization to assist in fighting hunger in the local area.

The Clay Club was established to further the knowledge of ceramic arts at UE and provide activities, both social and educational, to all interested students. Members raise funds to attend conferences, visit museums and galleries, and host visiting artists.
