"The American Dream" will melt away during the Republican and Democratic national conventions. Two artists from Brooklyn are installing massive ice sculptures of the words "The American Dream" in Cleveland and Philadelphia during those cities' conventions. Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese hope their 4,000-pound sculptures prompt viewers to think about issues of racial and income inequality and the erosion of opportunity. Poets and writers will read works on the topic, a belief that every American should have an equal chance at prosperity, success and upward social mobility by working hard.They choose ice for these works because they wanted to make the sculpture like a piece of performance art, as well as use a medium with which the public is familiar.
