Goodbye 2020

Waunakee sculptor Don Esser celebrated the new year by burning what he named Zozo in effigy. The burning man “was 30 feet tall, made in response to ending a year of political divisiveness, economic stress and the pain I was feeling being isolated from my daughters and grandchildren,” Esser said. The idea was to write down all the issues he and fellow celebrants wanted to leave behind as they approached the new year. They crumbled up all those grievances at Zozo’s feet, and Zozo took them along as he departed.
