2021 Winter Arts Snow Sculpting Competition

 

Washington Park
Feb 10 at 8 AM CST – Feb 13 at 4 PM CST
Price: Free · Duration: 3 days

This free, family-friendly event is brought to you by the Dubuque Museum of Art, in partnership with the City of Dubuque’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and Winterfun, Inc. This event is also made possible by the generous support of our corporate sponsor, Barton Wealth Management.

Sculpting will take place Wednesday through noon on Saturday, with teams working day and night to turn blocks of 288 cubic feet of snow into masterful works of art. The winning team will have the opportunity to represent the state at the 2022 U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, WI.

Sculptors begin their work on Wednesday, February 10 and have through noon on Saturday to transform their 288 cubic feet block of snow into a work of art. The public is invited to visit the park to view the progress throughout the week.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Saturday afternoon family-event will shift to safer, socially distanced or home-based opportunities including alternate methods for people’s choice voting, sharing of suggested at-home snow sculpting activities, and promotion of drive-by or socially distanced on foot viewing of the completed pieces.
