What’s better than a one-of-a-kind bowl handmade by a local artist? The obvious answer: a bowl handmade by a local artist that’s filled with ice cream. This weekend, the fledgling Urban Art Co-op, located on North Monroe Street, is hosting a community fundraiser in the cool, grassy shade of Manito Park, offering bowls made by its artists that are immediately and appropriately filled with summer’s best treat. The art co-op offers memberships starting at $50 per year, plus rental fees, which allow artists access to handbuilding and wheel-throwing pottery spaces for their creative use. Art classes are also taught there, and artists of all levels are welcome to come use the shared space.
Sat, Aug. 1, from 11 am-5 pm • $10-$12/bowl • Manito Park, North Shelter • 1702 S. Grand Blvd. • urbanartcoop.com • 720-7624
