The College of the Florida Keys’ student ceramics club, Mud-Pi, invites the community to its annual Mud-Pi Dinner on Thursday, December 1 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at CFK’s Ceramics Studio on the Key West Campus. As per tradition, attendees of the fund-raiser will select their own student-crafted ceramic bowl to eat from and take home as a souvenir. Students in CFK’s culinary program are catering the event with three multicultural food stations serving Cajun, Texan, and Mexican cuisines. A mocktail bar, staffed by students in the hospitality program, will serve creative beverages special for the event. Attendees will enjoy live demonstrations and be able to purchase art through a silent auction and ceramics sale. Admission is $50 at the door.
The funds raised will be used to purchase materials and equipment that allow Mud-Pi to continue to beautify and enrich the community. For more than 20 years, the students of Mud-Pi have created dozens of ornate ceramic wall murals and fountains that grace many locations in the Keys and provide the College’s Key West Campus with its signature aesthetic. The department also hosts young students, elementary through high school grades, as well as special needs groups to introduce them to the fine art of pottery.
