Students' Bowl Art Auctioned for Salvation Army
FSC students raised $928 for the Salvation Army through a silent auction in which they sold ceramic bowls made in art classes.
Tied to the College's two-year focus on poverty and hunger through SAGA (Student Awareness Generates Action), the students created bowls and concave platters in a number of decorative shapes in classes taught by adjunct professor Joe Mitchell. Bowls were chosen to symbolize hunger issues.
The bowls were sold through a silent bidding process during the FSC Opera Theatre, a Festival of Fine Arts event, on April 3. Patrons were invited to bid on the bowls before the concert and during intermission.
The idea was the brainchild of Lawrence R. Burke. Mr. Burke, who directs the Festival of Fine Arts, said he wanted to find a way to integrate SAGA into the festival programming.
