UE to Host Annual Chili Bowl Sale on October 20

Evansville, IN (10/11/2022) — The University of Evansville (UE) Department of Art and Clay Club will host the annual Chili Bowl Sale on Thursday, October 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will be held on the UE campus at the East Terrace Lawn, located next to Ridgway University Center off Walnut Street. In the event of rain, the sale will be moved indoors to Eykamp Hall, located on the second floor of Ridgway.

For $10, customers can buy one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls with the option of filling it with chili provided by Chartwells, UE's dining services provider. To-go containers will also be available. Larger bowls will be for sale and range in price from $15-100. 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 faculty and alumni and members of the Evansville community. Proceeds will go toward the Clay Club to fund conferences, visiting artists, and studio and gallery visits. This year, a portion of the proceeds will also be donated to a local food pantry to assist with fighting hunger.
