Purple Asparagus will be a part of the City of Chicago's Museum of Modern Ice, a Winter celebration in Millenium Park. The centerpiece of the event is a brilliantly colored ice wall that will be nearly 100 feet long and over 10 feet tall, a monumental exhibit by renowned artist Gordon Halloran, whose work has been showcased around the world most notably during the 2006 Turin Olympic Games. This is the first time that Halloran's work has been showcased in the U.S. and it promises to be the largest and most spectactular of his sculptures.
We will be in a heated tent adjacent to the artwork with several fun and fabulous family-friendly activities with a focus on a healthy lifestyle and good eating. On February 2 and 3 Chicagoans can enjoy building a snowman out of honey popcorn balls. Other activities include making maple taffy in the snow, growing a salad in a jar and sharing some good eats with our feathered friends making a pinecone birdfeeder.
