Brrr it sure is cold out there! What better way to spend a chilly Saturday than with friends surrounded by art and enjoying mouth-watering soups! Better yet, we’ve got a pair of tickets for you to win as well. The Taube Museum of Art in Minot will be hosting their seventh annual Soup It Up! fundraiser on Saturday, February 8, from 11 am–1:30 pm. Soup it Up

For the price of a ticket, the first 200 attendees will take home a hand crafted ceramic soup bowl created by the MSU Ceramics Department, Hi-Performance Ceramics, or the Magic City Campus Ceramics Department! There will also be live music by local band, Echo’s Answer, a Silent Auction with a variety of gift baskets, pottery, and additional art items will also be offered. A portion of the proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the MSU Ceramics Department Scholarship Fund. MSU Ceramics Department faculty and students and Jim Bailey with Hi Performance Ceramic Studio will have handcrafted pottery available for purchase on the tables and in the Museum Gift Shop.

Bowls

Soups including Chili Blanco, Canjun Bean and Ham, Chicken Tortilla and Tomato Basil Bisque will be provided by Primo Restaurant, Olive Garden, Ebeneezers Irish Pub, Judge Gary and Margaret Lee, Teri Tingley and the Museum Board of Directors for this heart warming event. Breads and desserts will also be provided by Marketplace Foods and Museum members.
