Kalele Bookstore and Divine Expressions is bringing in an artist-in-residence for a unique community project. Mavis Muller, a basket weaver, naturalist and teacher from Alaska has created a community interactive art project, called Burning Basket Project, which she has shared for many years in many communities, including Maui and Hawai`i Island.

Muller and Kalele Bookstore are inviting the public to participate in the creation a large intricately woven basket, made of local materials and with the personality of the community. Muller will give free presentation, entitled “Public Art as a Healing Force” on March 19 at 6:30 p.m. at Kalele Bookstore. She will be holding more workshops throughout March, some of which will have a small fee for materials, where everyone can create their own unique basket. The workshops will culminate in her Burning Basket Project on April 2.
