For 40 years artist Jay Critchley @jaycritchley has performed his Re-Rooters day ceremony highlighting the perils of consumptive capitalism. At the ceremony’s apex Jay set aflame a constructed boat carrying four Christmas trees from the dump (peppered with symbolic items from the crowd of onlookers they wanted to dispose on in the twilight of a New Year.) With equal parts humor and sanctity more than a hundred folks shivered on in solidarity and wonder.

Only in Provincetown 🙏

Congratulations to Jay on the commitment of this 40-year-old piece of art and thank you to Mike Sullivan @mike3sullivan for the fantastic photo. For more information please check out JayCritchley.com

We are shocked by the damage caused by yesterday’s storm to our community, and our hearts go out to local businesses like Fanizzi’s @paulfanizzi East End Market @eastendmarketptown , and the community members who have dealt with major damage and/or lost electricity or have been displaced for the holidays…

However, we are heartened by the waves of community support: We saw that folks raised over 15k (in a matter of hours) to support service workers, heard stories of neighbors welcoming one another into their homes for the holidays, were glad to hear about the warming center at the VmCC today, and have seen other local businesses jump at the opportunity to help one another. This may be a great example of the spirit of the holidays, but it’s always the spirit of Provincetown.

So wherever folks are tomorrow we hope they are warmed by that thought, and know we will continue to support in the ways we can. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Ptown 🌟
