UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED
Ice sculptors wanted
While the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum, 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport is currently celebrating the holidays with tours of the decorated mansion, it is looking ahead to its next major event, Ice Fest at Eagles Nest. The museum is seeking ice artists to feature their work at the museum’s first ice sculpture festival, to open in February 2019.
“We are looking for all ice sculptors who would like to participate in this exhibit and showcase their talents,” said Jim Munson, the Vanderbilt’s operations supervisor. “We are looking for live demonstrations as well as ice sculpture displays that will help advertise the artists’ businesses,” he added.
In return for their effort and contribution, participants will receive signage that identifies their business at each sculpting site, recognition on the Vanderbilt website, publicity releases sent to regional media, free advertising for six months on the Vanderbilt Reichert Planetarium dome, a one-year associate membership, which includes free passes to planetarium shows and guided mansion tours and more.
To secure a spot in this year’s Ice Fest, or to obtain more information, please contact Jim Munson at 631-379-2237 or email [email protected].
