BDN, Centralmaine.com highlight virtual Wabanaki Winter Market
The Bangor Daily News and Centralmaine.com shared a media release about the virtual Wabanaki Winter Market. After last year’s 25th annual Maine Indian Basketmakers Holiday Market, organizers renamed the event to better represent participants and the wide range of artforms. Despite it’s virtual nature, this year’s popular collaboration between the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance and the University of Maine Hudson Museum will still include demonstrations and performances. John Bear Mitchell, Penobscot, will emcee the livestreamed event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shoppers and browsers can find names of participating basketmakers and other artists in the Hudson Museum’s Wabanaki Artist Directory.
