Beat the winter blahs with a very special February Second Saturdays event!
Three professional snow-sculpting teams will compete to see who can carve the best snow creation, including a team from Dubuque who participated in last year’s U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition. The carving begins on Wednesday, Feb. 7, and ends at Noon on Saturday, Feb. 10, as the public event beings.
Join the Winter fun on Saturday, at Washington park directly in front of the Museum, and vote for your favorite sculpture. There will be both a “People’s Choice” award and a juried winner, announced at 3:45 PM.
But the fun isn’t only for the professionals! On Saturday, community members may try their hand at some sculptures of their own, either individually or in teams. Tools will be provided. Note that there will be a limited amount of snow-blocks available for carving.
In addition to the outside festivities, Second Saturdays continues inside the Dubuque Museum of Art. Take a break to warm up with some light refreshments and fun family art activities.
Please remember to dress warmly if you are planning on participating!
