The ice-sculpture begins!
Here I am, proudly posing with a recently-delivered ice-trailer. I am making blocks of ice over the next three months for a sculpture installation. When I’m done, I’ll have 3,098 pounds of ice. The blocks will be assembled into one massive block measuring 6 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet. The installation will open as a part of National Sculpture Month on October 21, 2017 in the Washington Ave. Art District’s Artist Alley, just outside the SITE Gallery at The Silos. As the ice melts, it will reveal a map showing Galveston in the year 2517. Spoiler alert: Galveston will be underwater, according to SCIENCE!
