The Starving Artists Collective presents: THE ARTISTS’ SOUP KITCHEN

Hi friends,

I’m excited to invite you to the ARTISTS’ SOUP KITCHEN. For six Monday afternoons this winter, artists can come to the ARTISTS’ SOUP KITCHEN for a FREE hot lunch. Each week is hosted by different artists who will bring their creative practices to the Soup Kitchen.
We kick off the Kitchen on Monday, January 9 with a Dr. Seuss homage by artist Ulysses Castellanos, offering green eggs and ham. Then join us on January 16 for Mystic Pizza Crust divination readings by Helen Reed and Hannah Jickling. See [poster] below for the full menu of participating artists. A printed catalogue/recipe book will be made available in the spring. Come out and beat the winter chill.
