Bowls For Open Arms is an exhibition project now on view (through April 9) at ASI that was co-presented by regional craft organizations advocating for the advancement of the handmade -  The American Swedish Institute, FOCI Center For Glass Arts, Northern Clay and American Woodturners Association.  Craft ambassadors from each organization present a selection of handmade bowls available for purchase, with proceeds going to Open Arms of Minnesota, a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities.
