World Hunger Bowl, an arts fundraiser of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, relies on donated art, such as the bowls created by Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and marine-life artist Robert Wyland, for its silent auction.

Proceeds from the effort will benefit Laguna Beach’s homeless community and the Collaborative Courts Foundation’s Homeless Outreach Program, whose 900 clients include combat veterans.

Nick Carter, the youngest member of The Backstreet Boys when the popular harmony group began in 1993, picked up a brush this autumn to help feed the hungry and homeless. The 33-year-old singer-musician hand-painted a ceramic bowl with a black shark at the studio of marine-life artist, Wyland on Pacific Coast Hwy.

Carter’s bowl became a donation to World Hunger Bowl, the annual arts benefit dinner held during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Nov 1-7 in Laguna Beach. As he has done for successive years, Wyland also donated artisan bowls for the silent auction. His 2013 conservation-conscious designs feature a turtle and a dolphin, respectively.
