We celebrate winter in strange ways here in the north country.
Take this ice sculpture for example.
A Twin Ports sculptor has created a work of art using water, wires, subzero temperatures and a lawn sprinkler attached to a flag pole. The piece has been authorized by civic leaders and is the centerpiece of a “Winter Frolic” organized by a chilly Lake Superior community.
So what does this 50-foot frozen drive-in movie theater screen represent? What is the artist trying to say? Is the piece a commentary on life inside a parka? I’ll leave that to the art critics.
The real question here is where do art lovers have to go to look this icy Picasso in the eye? Minnesota or Wisconsin?
