Empty Bowls
Tues, Feb 23, 2016 at 11 am: $10 cash donation per bowl at the event
Signal Peak Campus, N Plaza
CAC is proud to host its 14th Annual Empty Bowls. To date, the event has donated over $20,000! Empty Bowls, a worldwide grass roots initiative, began in 1990 to help fight hunger. Ceramists at CAC create food safe, stoneware bowls and donate their material and time. The CAC Culinary Arts students serve a simple meal of soup and bread. The meal is served very simply to demonstrate solidarity with folks who are served in a soup kitchen. Guests choose a bowl to use and to keep, as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. Guests give a minimum donation of $10 cash and the CAC Art Club donates proceeds to a local food bank. We do not pre sell bowls or tickets in order to give everyone a fair chance to choose their favorite bowl. The sale begins at 11 am on the south patio of the Sizer Building (N).

Each year hundreds of spectators descend on Picacho Peak State Park to watch re-enactments of an Arizona Civil War skirmish and the New Mexico battles of Glorieta and Val Verde.
Visitors travel from around the country to experience three fascinating historic battle re-enactments complete with lifestyles of the soldiers in the southwest during the 1860s. More than 200 re-enactors come from many states and will camp at the park with their authentic Civil War camping gear. Food and beverage concessions are also available, including the popular Kettle corn vendor.
Experience three battle re-enactments during the annual Civil War the Southest event.
Civil War battles across America were well documented and history teachers carefully covered each battle across the East Coast, but few ever thought what was happening in the West during this time. A battle of the American Civil War was a skirmish fought near a rocky spire called Picacho Peak located between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. The new highway follows the old wagon route that passed Picacho in 1862.
In 1860 the New Mexico Territory, which consisted of the lands that would become the states of Arizona and New Mexico, was sparsely populated. It ranked 34th in population out of 43 states and territories with only 83,009 inhabitants. It was 37th in black populations, with just 8 whom were all free. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, the U.S. Government recalled the majority of its troops from the West to build the Union army for the fighting in the east. Henry Hopkins Sibley joined the Confederacy and convinced Jefferson Davis that he would raise an army in Texas and invade New Mexico territories. He proposed that mineral resources would fill the coffers of the Confederacy and fund their massive war effort.

When the Civil War broke out in 1861, the U.S. Government recalled the majority of its troops from the West to build the Union army for the fighting in the east. Henry Hopkins Sibley joined the Confederacy and convinced Jefferson Davis that he would raise an army in Texas and invade New Mexico territories. He proposed that mineral resources would fill the coffers of the Confederacy and fund their massive war effort.
