Life Sciences Building presentation

Herron School of Art instructor Geoffrey Bowen (left) and student Kayce Colstad did a wheel-throwing demo at the Indianapolis Artsgarden prior to the second annual Empty Bowls supper at North Central High School Oct. 16. Herron students made and donated 500 ceramic bowls for the event, which raised more than $4,000 for the Children's Bureau of Indianapolis. Meanwhile, the school continues its first public fund-raising campaign in its 99 years of existence; in the last 18 months, the school has raised more than $7 million toward a goal of $10 million needed for relocation to the IUPUI campus. Herron's annual open house is Nov. 15. Herron Web site
