While the mid 50-degree temperatures didn’t do any of the ice sculptors invited to downtown Sturgeon Bay for yesterday’s Fire and Ice Celebration any favors, the steadfast sculptors were still able to create some marvelous works of art. Two of the artists, Maria Genesse and Jon Merrill, both students at Fox Valley Technical College, stressed that patience was the key.
Genesse and Merrill were awarded 3rd place in the intermediate category for their sculpture, a breaching whale. 1st place winners included Team Frozen in the “Beginners” category, Tina Gohr and Tracy Robinson in the “Intermediate “category and Gary Richter in the “Advanced” category.
