Empty Bowls Project

Northeast’s first “Empty Bowls Project”–an international grassroots movement to address hunger–will take place Saturday, December 14 at Eastside Neighborhood Services. Edison High School’s fine arts department and its after-school “Life Skills” cooking program will participate, as well as neighborhood vendors including Hazel’s Northeast, Bulldog and Chowigirls Catering. More information is on the web site and Facebook.

Alley Atlas

Local writer and urban explorer Andy Sturdevant is leading a project inviting residents to propose names for alleys in their neighborhoods of Minneapolis. Visitors to the project web site may select an alley and give it a name of their choosing, which will then be added to a floor-co-ceiling map in a Minnesota Institute of Art gallery.
