In cities that experience snowfall every winter season, citizens tend to get creative and utilize the natural wonder that is ice and snow. Other than taking advantage of ski and snowboard hills, which can become quite costly with all related gear and entrance fees, many individuals opt for checking out their local snow show. Ice and snow sculptors look forward to the winter season to display their breathtaking pieces of art and there is no better way than to display it amongst other similarly inclined individuals. Walking through a winter wonderland of creatively designed sculptures is an activity that every family and individual can enjoy. This is particularly advantageous to those families who may not have the luxury of extended periods of time off that is required for other winter activities such as a ski trip.
Appreciation of artists and their creations is something that most individuals possess; if one were to travel to Florence it is highly unlikely that a trip to the Uffizi gallery to see Botticelli’s Venus or a quick glimpse at the Galleria Dell’ Academia to see the Michelangelo’s David would not be on the agenda. Appreciation of art should, and does, go beyond the classic renaissance and neoclassical artists of the past, and extends to every conceivable expression of artistic passion with whatever material an artist may become inspired by. For those living their daily lives in northern climates, the presence of snow and ice may seem mundane, but to an artist it is a pristine and beautiful sculpture waiting to happen. Instilling an appreciation for art that is sourced from the very accessible material that falls from the sky and lands at our feet is the first step in building a wider appreciation of art. Families can attend a snow show to see how artists transform snow and ice into something to be admired and appreciated.
A snow show is a great way for families to not only instill an appreciation of art in their children, but to inspire future generations to pursue artistic endeavors. Snow sculpting need only start with that first snowman one builds in their backyard; it is a highly accessible way to create art. Taking a stroll among the product of hard work and creativity that has been produced at comparatively low cost is a great example to set for ones children; anything can be turned into art and ever form of art should be appreciated.
