Superstar

Melting Economy

Marshall Reese and Nora Ligorano commemorated the anniversary of Black Friday and the financial crisis by sculpting the word "economy" out of 1500 pounds of ice. The ice sculpture, which is located in front of the Supreme Court in downtown Manhattan, is a clever way to express social criticism. As the sculpture melts, it provides an artistic representation of our falling--or melting, if you will--economy.

In case you missed that day in history class, Black Friday was the dismal day 79 years ago that led up to the Great Depression. The infamous day-after-Thanksgiving shopapalooza that is also known as Black Friday isn't until next month.
