Ever wonder how master ice carvers transform a hunk of ice into magical translucent animals and vignettes for swanky parties? Well tomorrow, you and your family can find out. On December 18, at Grace Building Plaza (1114 Avenue of the Americas at West 43rd Street), Arts Brookfield will host the second of a two-day exhibit of holiday ice sculptures depicting polar seascapes. From noon to 1p.m., Okamoto Studios’ best team of ice sculptors will demonstrate their craft, live, by adding Arctic and Antarctica creatures such as penguins, walruses, seals, whales and polar bears to the plaza. Rumor has it they will even create a mythical dragon and a mermaid. If you can rearrange your evening tonight, you’ll witness the first session of ice carving from 5p.m.-7p.m.
On Tuesday, STK OUT will be serving sugary snacks should all that ice carving leave you hungry. Dress warmly and be mindful of the chainsaws and flying ice chips!
