Museum of Modern Ice

As a lover of winter, I just had to check out the Museum of Modern Ice, before it's gone at the end of the month. It's situated in Chicago's Millennium Park, just east of "Cloud Gate" (aka "The Bean). As sunlight strikes it, even the refrigeration system can't prevent it from becoming a work-in-progress. It consists of several huge panels, double sided, with colored ice sheets, in a variety of shapes and sizes, cut at different angles. I tried to get lots of different pictures so you can get a feel for it. It was, quite literally, COOL.

I would love to see that IRL, it looks so juicy and bright. Thanks for bringing a bit of a light to the dreary day I've had here in PA.

Hello, Your pictures make me wish we had time to make it to Chicago for a winter visit. I am visiting from Carrie's Creation In Art. The pictures are simply beautiful.

Love and Hugs,
