Join us for a ceremonial release of handwritten burdens from the Burden Boat. This event will take place at The Dr. Robert L.A. Keeley Healing Arts Garden, on the Roanoke River Greenway outside Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital (CRMH).
The Burden Boat is an interactive work of art designed to help people release their burdens. The sculpture is on display in the atrium area of the lobby at CRMH, and the public is invited to write down their burdens and place them in the boat. The Burden Boat, created by artist, Kurt Steger, was acquired with contributions made to The Dr. Robert L.A. Keeley Healing Arts Program.

“As the artist, I honor all those who have made the courageous choice to let go of something they may have held for moments, years, or a lifetime,” said Kurt.
At the Oct. 29 ceremonial release of burdens event that begins at 4 p.m., Chaplain Lisa Vineyard and artist Kurt Steger will lead a time of reflection while burdens are symbolically lifted.
