2015 BP World Ice Art Competition  

Due to the weather this past week Ice Alaska has extended the deadline for the artists to  complete their pieces in the GCI Multi Block Classic till midnight tonight instead of the original schedule of 9:00 PM.

Mary Matthews’ comment regarding the time extension reflects the sentiments of all the Judges and all the volunteers at Ice Alaska:

 “I am sad for the carvers who have to battle the temps. How disappointing
for them to look forward all year to the event and then basically be super
uber challenged. At least I get to go home, take a nap, feel refreshed, and
stand there in front of their struggles with my sharp pencil.”  
Mary Matthews, Judge
