Can ice carvings be displayed outside in the sun?

The cold of winter is a great time to enjoy ice carvings outside for weeks at a time, but in winter or summer the ultraviolet light of sunshine will fracture the ice like a crystal chandelier.  For this reason your outside sculpture will need to stay out of direct sunlight. The same is true for outside ice carving demonstrations.  Consistent shade can often be found on the north side of a building.
