The Depot

by Dave Lynas

This week on Radio Gallery we gear up for Empty Bowl, an annual fundraiser and awareness campaign to fight hunger in our community and around the world. Local artists donate their work  to benefit the Northern Lakes Food Bank. In exchange for a cash donation, you are invited to a simple meal of soup and to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Duluth’s empty Bowl event benefits the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank. The preview event Sea of Bowls is Monday night at 5pm; Empty Bowl happens all day Tuesday, April 14, 2015  starting at 10 am.

The 4th Annual Duluth Superior Film Festival runs May 29-June 2 and every year is better than the last. Started as Sound Unseen and yet to expand to Superior, this local gem of an event has so much to offer. Movie stars, director talks, local shorts and amazing independent films.
