Build week for the 10th annual Burning Basket, “Enjoy,” continues from noon to 5 p.m. daily through Saturday at Mariner Park on the Homer Spit. The interactive community art project includes an outdoor basket sculpture and labyrinth. The basket of remembrance and unburdening is offered to the community at 1 p.m. Sunday, with a potluck and artist talk at 6 p.m. At sundown the torch is lit and the basket burned in the theme of honoring, releasing and celebrating the creative process. Visitors are invited to decorate the basket on Sunday with personal notes and art. “Enjoy” is the 27th in a series of burning basket enactments facilitated by artist Mavis Muller.
