Burning Basket is Sept. 13

“Reimagine: A Basket of Remembrance & Unburdening ” is the theme of this year’s burning basket, a community interactive, impermanent art experience led by installation artist Mavis Muller.

The large, woven basket sculpture will be installed from Sept. 10 to Sept. 11 at Mariner Park on the Homer Spit.

On Sunday, Sept 13, the basket will be presented as a gift to the community for public participation by way of decorating the outside as a poetic collage, and as a memorial. Personal sentiments can be tucked inside.

“At sundown the basket will be ignited as a performance of fire-art, and as a symbolic dispersing of burdens of the heart, and collective positive intentions,” Muller said in a press release.

This pandemic version of Burning Basket 2020 will be with COVID-safe precautions. This is a free, no-alcohol no-dogs event.
