The Calumet Art Center would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported us at the Soup Bowl Sale Fundraiser at the Michigan House yesterday. You made it a huge success and we sold out of bowls by 2 pm. We would also like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Sue & Tim and everyone at the Michigan House for all they did to make the day the success it was. Soup was amazing, service was excellent and the Michigan House as usual was a great supporter of the Calumet Art Center. AND we can’t forget Oren Tikkanen and the Backroom Boys for providing the entertainment.
