Vanishing Middle Class
A 2,500-pound ice sculpture, carved to spell Middle Class, appeared in downtown Tampa last Sunday. This work serves to mark the opening days of the Republican and Democratic national conventions.
“It’s a call to action,” said Marshall Reese, as about 1,000 people watched Middle Class melt away.
Brooklyn-based Ligorano/Reese, as the conceptual art duo is known, often discuss social and political issues in their art. They have also melted ice sculptures spelling Democracy and Economy.
