Creating Art from Ice

Ever wonder how ice sculptures are made? Or what sorts of tools are used to create these magnificent works of art? Watch as professional sculptors wield their magic on Saturday, Feb. 13, at Long Wharf Mall. Starting at 11 a.m. they will begin practicing their craft on huge blocks of ice that, once carved, will be on display during the Newport Winter Festival, which hosts dozens of family-friendly activities from Feb. 12-21. Popular events for adults include the outdoor ice bars, the hot drink contest, and nighttime comedy shows. To find out about more events, turn to page 14 or visit newportwinterfestival.com.
