Grab your buckets and your snow shovels – it’s time to apply for Aspen’s best snow sculpture event! Carve an 8’ square foot cube of snow in 48 hours on the Aspen pedestrian mall as part of the larger Wintersköl™ festivities. Anderson Ranch Arts Center is seeking submissions from artists and amateurs, schools and businesses, friends and families. Everyone is invited to participate! It only takes a good idea, a love of snow, and a few pairs of mittens. Join in on the fun! Submit a team today!

The theme for Wintersculpt 2019 coincides with this year’s Wintersköl slogan “Aspen, Original by Design.” This year the world and the Roaring Fork Valley commemorate the centennial of the Bauhaus, a modernist design school originated in Germany with unique ties to the city of Aspen through the legacy of artist Herbert Bayer. Sculptures must be inspired by Bauhaus design principles and highlight the lasting influence Bauhaus has on contemporary art, architecture, and graphic design. Be inspired by Bauhaus!
