Arts Brookfield has invited New York City-based artist collective Okamoto Studio, a specialist in ice sculptures, to do a live carving at Grace Plaza next to Bryant Park. The event, titled Grace-ful Ice: Dinosaurs began yesterday and will return at noon today. It’s too warm for the dinosaur ice sculptures to last overnight, so yesterday’s carvings have all melted but fortunately, there’s Instagram to keep them for posterity.
