ART from ART

Ice sculptures in downtown Chicago give inspiration to these pieces of art.

What a great show, see the artists at work creating these wonderful colors, then cutting the ice slabs into shape for the sculpture. Sunday had a large group of people show up to watch the artists working.

Today I got the pleasure of attending St. Theresa's Catholic Mission Lunar New Year celebration in Chinatown-Chicago. After the mass there was a family blessing, ancestoral blessing ceremony followed by lunch and traditional dancing by children for St. Theresa's school.
