Snow sculpture magicSubmitted: 01/31/2014
Story By Stephanie Fuerte


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.

MERRILL - Merrill may get a new grandstand by next summer.

On Monday the city sent out proposal requests for companies to bid on.

The grandstand will go in the Lincoln County Fairgrounds near the location of the old grandstand. That was destroyed in 2011 by a tornado. It sat about 1,800 people on benches, and city leaders said those seats were uncomfortable.

The new grandstand will fit between 2,500 and 3,000 people on stadium seating and benches with backs "to provide a much nicer venue for events," said Merrill City Administrator Dave Johnson.
