The city of Whitefish is looking for teams to participate in the second annual Snow Sculpture Showcase planned for the weekend of Whitefish Winter Carnival on Feb. 1 and 2.

The city is calling for teams to come together to create a snow sculpture garden in Depot Park. The theme for the symposium will mimic the Winter Carnival theme of “Woodstock Whitefish.” This theme does not limit artists and their creative possibilities, but gives a good starting point on what could be put to life.

Advanced teams will be provided a round block of snow 9 feet high by 6 feet in diameter, while novice teams will be given a small block, 6 feet tall by 4.5 feet in diameter. Sculptors must supply their own tools and no electrical or gas powered tools are allowed. No props or coloring of snow is allowed.

Beginning on Feb. 1 at 8 a.m., teams will start work on their sculptures, with a goal of completing them by 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2. The community will be given a chance to vote on their favorite sculptures during the parade from 2-4 p.m. Cash awards will be presented to both advanced and novice categories.

The deadline to register is Friday, Jan. 18 by 5 p.m. Teams will be notified of acceptance in the showcase on Monday, Jan. 22. Registration is free and more detailed information and registration forms can be found at http://www.cityofwhitefish.org/parks-and-recreation/staff-and-news.php.

Teams can also sign up through the Art Expo hosted by Climate Smart Glacier Country. All awards will be presented at the expo taking place at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center at 5 p.m. on Feb. 2. Visit www.climatesmartglaciercountry.org for more information on the expo.
