Jim Kempner Fine Art is pleased to present Ligorano/Reese’s exhibition ICED. For the past five years, Ligorano/Reese have presented installations of ice sculptures as public artworks across the country. These installations weigh over 1 ton and may last as long as 24 hours before they disappear. The exhibit at Kempner showcases digital prints and time-lapse videos from this series of works, which the artists call “temporary monuments.”
