"ICE." In this era of melting glaciers and looming extinctions, the
Athens Cultural Center presents a multi media exploration of the many
meanings of ICE in history, popular culture and the artists'
imagination. Curated and designed by Carrie Feder, the show will pull
together diverse artifacts and imagery relating to ice in all its forms:
polar exploration, the ice industry, sports, utilitarian products,
advertising, literature, decorative objects and the environment.
Contemporary works by local and not so local artists will be featured.
Please join us for the opening on Friday June 7, 7-9 pm. Iced
refreshments will be served and a short presentation of ice related
readings and songs will be presented.
This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the
Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts
administered through the Community Arts Grants Program by the Greene
County Council on the Arts as well as the Peckham Foundation.
