Burning basket build week starts Sept. 8

Build week for the 10th annual Burning Basket, “Enjoy,” starts Sept. 8 and runs noon to 5 p.m. daily through Sept. 14 at Mariner Park on the Homer Spit. Help create a community interactive art work that is an outdoor basket sculpture and labyrinth. The basket of remembrance and unburdening is offered to the community at 1 p.m. Sept. 15 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.

“Enjoy” is the 27th in a series of burning basket enactments facilitated by artist Mavis Muller. Muller is now in Reno, Nev., working with a team of international artists building sculptures for the Burning Man Festival in the Black Rock Desert. She is working with a group from the Source Interactive Arts Festival of Maui, Hawaii, that will install the sculpture at Burning Man next week. Muller also has been invited by the Black Rock Arts Foundation to speak at Burning Man.
