ORB 365: A Community Art Installation with the 2016 Lake Superior Ice Festival

Be a part of the Lake Superior Ice Festival, a celebration of Winter and Water, by contributing to ORB 365! 

Work with your family, friends, school or community group, or as an individual, to contribute to this community art installation by creating ice orbs! Each orb represents a day of the year that water is important to us. 

All ice orbs will be arranged into a larger installation on Barker's Island for the closing ceremony of the Lake Superior Ice Festival (Sat. Feb 27th).

1. Complete and email a pledge form to make ice orbs ( or 715-394-0392). We will provide all necessary materials and instructions.

2. Fill balloons with water and place outside until frozen (2-4 days depending upon air temperature). 

3. Deliver frozen orbs to Barker’s Island on Friday Feb. 26 between 10am-12pm (or arrange for pick-up). 

All Orbs must be delivered in frozen form by noon on Friday Feb 26th.

4. Visit the Lake Superior Ice Festival on Barker’s Island anytime between Feb. 20th-27th, and for the closing ceremony on Saturday Feb 27th to see your contribution to the celebration! Learn more about the event on the Ice Festival Facebook Page.
