Join the merriment as the community is invited to celebrate “The Tenth Annual Vail Winterfest Ice Theater presented by Vicki and Kent Logan” returning to Vail this winter season. After enjoying great success with last winter’s Vail Winterfest Ice Theater, Art in Public Places with ice sculptor Paul Wertin will bring back the coolest outdoor ice theater and family-friendly cinematic experience in ice. Last year’s Art Deco inspired theater screen and “Alice in Wonderland” inspired ice chairs were enjoyed by all ages. Lounge in the oversized ice chairs for a perfect photo opportunity while enjoying the scenic Gore Creek during the day and film projections on a screen created in ice in the evening.
The Vail Winterfest Ice Theater will feature the favorite holiday cartoon How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) at the opening celebration, along with hot chocolate and other treats for guests. Beloved winter and holiday themed cartoons will be projected through the New Year, followed by other treasured classics. Projection begins daily at dusk until 10:00 p.m. and will be on view until the ice melts!
This installation is made possible through generous funding from Vicki and Kent Logan. The Logans, who were married on top of Vail Mountain in 1985, have been dedicated supporters of the arts for many years. It is with great appreciation from Art in Public Places that they are continuing to fund this popular winter art installation for the community to enjoy.
