ICE BOX: art in the heart of winter

February 8, 2019 - 10:00 am

ICE BOX is a new outdoor art event taking place February 2-10 2019 in Picton, Ontario. It is produced by The Department of Illumination, the artist collective behind Prince Edward County’s much-loved Firelight Lantern Festival, in partnership with Macaulay Heritage Park.

ICE BOX will take place on the grounds of Picton’s historic Macaulay House. At the centre of the event are five ice boxes, colourful wooden huts, each transformed into an interactive art installation led by local artists in collaboration with community members of all ages. The site of ICE BOX will be a festive gathering place that over the course of two weekends will be a hive of activity, including dancing, live music, storytelling and even a community procession! Over five weekdays ICE BOX will be focused on school visits, giving hundreds of children the chance to experience both art and winter like never before.
