Snow sculpture magic Submitted: 01/31/2014
WAUSAU - Some of us just shovel snow, but three sculptors are turning it into a work of art. Team USA Snow Sculptors are back for their 24th Snow Magic at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau. This year's sculpture is based off the museum's exhibition of magic themed artwork. "They always choose a theme that relates to artwork on view, and in this case it's not based on a particular specific artwork, but more illustrating the theme of magic and the magic of snow sculpture and of artwork in general," says the museum's marketing and communications manager Amy Beck. The sculptors are working all weekend long to finish the project by Sunday. The team has been together for almost 30 years. "This is one of our regular stops each year, and they always treat us really well," says snow sculptor Mike Martino. "We enjoy the people coming out and talking to us. And this year we've got just wonderful conditions. This is great temperatures, perfect snow. They packed a really good block for us so it's really great." They'll turn the snow into a rabbit emerging out of a hat to fit the museum's magical theme. Visitors can see the sculpturing process through Sunday.
