Cold-Hearted Valentine

This Valentine’s Day, look into that icy heart.  Look at it.  Look through it.  Take pictures of it.  Watch it melt, change, drip, harden.

Starting today, a team of sculptors and engineers will create a 10-foot tall Ice Heart in Times Square.  Built of masonry-scaled blocks of ice, the sculpture will attract visitors and New Yorkers alike to Duffy Square on 46th Street and Broadway.  According to designer Granger Moorhead, “The Ice Heart will constantly change as its crystalline form picks up the lights, colors and chaos of Times Square—we look forward to the kaleidoscopic effect…”

Weather permitting, the Times Square Alliance expects to display the Ice Heart until February 22nd, allowing visitors the opportunity to see its sharp edges transform and round.   Can’t make it to Times Square?  Send your loved ones an electronic Valentine at www.theiceheart.com.
