Snow Sculpture Symposium

Call for Artists

The City of Whitefish is excited to announce the 1st Annual Snow Sculpture Symposium planned for the weekend of Winter Carnival, February 2nd through February 4th, 2018.  

In the spirit of mutual support and cooperation, the City is calling for teams of artists to come together to create a snow sculpture garden in Depot Park. The theme for the symposium will mimic the Winter Carnival theme: “Celebrating 70 years of Big Mountain.”  The goal is to make Depot Park a center piece for our beautiful community, showcasing the skills and abilities of Montana artists during the annual celebration of Whitefish Winter Carnival.  

There will be a limit of nine teams in the symposium, made up of two to four people per team.  

Teams must submit and work from original designs only. Each team will be provided a cylinder of snow, nine feet high by six feet wide in diameter. 

The deadline to register is Friday, January 19th by 5:00 p.m. Teams will be notified of acceptance in the symposium on Monday, January 22nd.
