NORMAN, Okla. (October 19, 2011) - Love chili? Love to cook? The School of Art & Art History is preparing for the fourth annual Chili Bowl and invites those to participate in this year's chili cook-off. The event is judged by three members of the Norman community and prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners. All chili is welcome: red, white, green, vegetarian and others.

 

The University of Oklahoma School of Art & Art History present the fourth annual Chili Bowl 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Wednesday, Nov. 16, in the Lightwell Gallery. Those interested in submitting an entry must confirm via email by Tuesday, Nov. 1. Please bring the pot of chili already heated in a crock-pot no later than 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, to the Lightwell Gallery.

 

The Chili Bowl is an annual fundraiser hosted by the School of Art & Art History and sponsored by the Arts Alliance and the Red Clay Faction. The event is a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the community to support the School of Art & Art History, taste a variety of homemade chilies and take home a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl.

 

OU ceramic students and members of the Red Clay Faction create the handmade bowls, which will be available for purchase on a first come, first serve basis. All-you-can-eat chili and a handmade ceramic bowl is $15. All-you-can-eat Chili without a ceramic bowl costs $8. The bowls are all food, dishwasher and oven safe. All proceeds will fund School of Art & Art History student scholarships.
