NANTUCKET LIGHTSHIP BASKET MUSEUM’s BASKETS & BUBBLY AUCTION
The Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum will hold an online auction
to celebrate this year’s Baskets & Bubbly fundraiser. The auction will
be online from 8AM on Saturday, August 1st and closes
at 8PM on Sunday, August 9th.
A video introduction by Raphael Osana will be a prelude to the 20 auction items.
This is the opportunity to celebrate the Museum’s 20th year through monetary support as this auction is one our main fundraisers. There will be a plethora of Anniversary events next summer when permitted.
Monies raised from Baskets & Bubbly will help the Museum promote awareness and appreciation of lightship baskets and their makers. Nantucket Lightship Baskets are considered a Nantucket icon as one of the few crafts created here. The mission of the Museum is to engage the public about the complexity of this art form through museum tours, classes, demonstrations and lectures.
The museum mentors adults and children to become new stalwarts of this
unique Nantucket craft and its history.
Our website will host the auction at www.nantucketlightshipbasketmuseum.org.
