Frozen Blankets To Be Displayed On Pedestrian Mall

Celeste Chadwick, Reporter

Architects from OPN Architecture, an architecture company out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and art students from the University of Iowa will demonstrate their talent by creating Frozen Blanket sculptures, which will be featured on the pedestrian mall in downtown Iowa City.

The sculptures will be showcased on Saturday February 13. The sculptors add a new twist to an age old art of ice sculpting by freezing blankets in the shape of tents and adding an array of lights to the artwork. The sculpting will begin at seven o’clock in the evening. Molly’s Cupcakes and Yotopia will provide snacks for the night. The sculptures will be placed between the Iowa City Public Library and the Sheraton Hotel near the weather dance fountain.
