The Dubuque Museum of Art and the City of Dubuque Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs are pleased to partner to present the 2020 Winter Arts Snow Sculpting Festival, a free community event.
The public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite sculpture for a People’s Choice Award. A State of Iowa award winner will be selected by a local jury and will advance to the US National Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, Wis. Both winners will be announced at the event at 3:45 p.m.
The community snow sculpting portion of the event offers the public an opportunity to sculpt as well, either as a team or individually. Community teams or individuals of any age interested in creating snow sculptures of their own will have access to a number of designated blocks. Tools will be provided. Those interested in carving snow should wear clothing appropriate for the weather.
The Dubuque Museum of Art will offer free admission and tours of the current exhibits during the event. The Glab Family Art Studio will be open with lots of hands-on activities for all ages.
Hot beverages and food will be available for purchase on site, courtesy of Frosted N’ Filled and Happi Hibachi
