Artists To Stage Literal Meltdown Of American Economy

Artists To Stage Literal Meltdown Of American Economy

On October 29, the economy will melt down. Not the general economy per se, but a 5 foot tall, 15 feet wide, 1,500 pound ice sculpture of the word “ECONOMY” in Manhattan’s Foley Square, relatively near to Wall Street. Artists Ligorano/Reese say, “this sculpture metaphorically captures the results of unregulated markets on the U.S. economy.” October 29 also happens to be the 79th anniversary of Black Tuesday.
