Ice Wonders II - 2013
Ice Wonders was an European exchange project for young artists with an interest for fine arts. In the ten-day long project, 30 participants in the age between 18 and 30, came together in Dresden and trained the artistic treatment of ice, with the help from experienced ice-sculpture designers.
In daily workshops, the participants developed their knowledge and their abilities in the handling of big ice blogs where, first of all, artistic abilities as well as abilities to work in teams were demanded. In a live workshop at Goldener Reiter, the young artists presented their talent while creating magnificent ice sculptures in front of the public.
The live workshop and the subsequent exposition was free for everyone to join, which also allowed a dialogue between the artists and the public. The Ice Wonders took place for the first time in March 2012 and gained much attention in the regional media.
