Snow sculpture finished at Woodson Art Museum


Three artists have finished a snow sculpture at the Woodson Art Museum.

The sculpture is a tree frog based on a piece of art on display in the museum.

It's made from a 12-foot-tall block of snow.

The sculptors said it's always exciting to add the finishing touches.

"You want to see it done, you want to see it really popping we call it, you know, where you get all the details, and with snow we call it overcarving, kind of really carving deep to get those dark lines and then you get that contrast that you need for it to really read well, especially from a distance," said Sculptor, Mike Martino.

The artists have been working together for 28 years and created more than 170 sculptures.

They start their next project Sunday at the 400 Block for Winterfest.
