Virtual Baskets & Bubbly Auction

Lightship basket Museum | Nantucket, MA
August 1, 2020 – August 9, 2020 all-day

Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum’s Baskets & Bubbly Auction is going virtual for 2020!

The Baskets & Bubbly event is a top fundraiser for the museum. All proceeds raised will go a long way in helping the museum promote the awareness and appreciation of lightship baskets and their makers.  Museum staff does this by educating and engaging the public about the complexity of this art form unique to Nantucket and placing it within a broader context of related crafts. The museum is dedicated to preserving Nantucket’s rich history of basket making, supporting scholarship of this art form, and encouraging and mentoring new generations of lightship basket makers.
