On January 16, 1988, Icebox Studio opened its doors for a group show of 11 friends and artists. The name of the show was Crystallized Phantoms; it took place on a Saturday night in a basement space named after a refrigerator. That was twenty-five years ago.
At the time Icebox Studio opened, Howard Christopherson was creating manipulated art using photographs, paintings, drawings and sculptures. The single work of art, a small-scale found object sculpture created on the bottom of a coffee cup, titled “Crystallized Phantom” (1987), put him on the path to the first gallery exhibit. The first exhibit played a key role in opening the art gallery and framing business, which helped to reshape Northeast Minneapolis into an arts community. Christopherson was one of the founders of Art-A-Whirl, now the largest open studio event in the state of Minnesota.
We hope you attend the next two new exhibits, which are numbers 124 and 125 of Icebox’s total exhibits to date. Each exhibit will bring you back to the art and events that occurred over the past twenty-five years beginning in
