If you’re looking for something to decorate your home, you’ve come to the right place.
For the first time in history, snow sculptures are being created in the United States.
In 2016, the National Park Service announced the creation of a new snow sculpture in a National Snow and Ice Data Center.
In 2017, the Department of Energy’s National Snow Foundation announced a $10 million program to create snow sculptures in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
The National Snow Art Foundation says the new sculpture, named Snowy Girl, will depict a woman in a snow-covered dress, holding a snow globe, who is “wandering the snowy fields of the Arctic in search of a warm and sunny place to rest and relax.”
It’s unclear whether the sculpture will be installed in the National Snow Center, the largest snow sculpture facility in the world, or a new facility in Cheyenne.
However, the snow sculpture was made by a team from the National Weather Service in the U.S. In 2018, the Smithsonian Institution unveiled the Snowy Man sculpture, made from snow gathered in the snow from Alaska.
In 2020, the Arctic Council announced a program that includes $2 million in grants to artists, photographers and snow artists to make snow sculptures.
