Is there any more iconic winter tradition than building a snowman? Sure, most childhood snowmen are pretty rudimentary affairs – three big balls of snow topping each other, jazzed up with whatever accessories can be found around the house.

Every year, the Dubuque Museum of Art and the city’s Office of Art and Cultural Affairs work together to bring the Winter Arts Snow Sculpting Competition and Festival to light, and the dates for 2023 will be announced soon. What will this year’s creations look like? Let’s take a look back into the past of this fascinating competition.
