Art is the highest form of hope. - Gerhard Richter
If art is the highest form of hope, what should we call art made of an unstable, unpredictable and organic substance, threatened by sun, gravity and time?
Maybe an answer will come to you as you tour the creations made by the International Snow Sculpting teams right here in downtown Breckenridge.
Breckenridge Associates Real Estate is proud to support the International Snow Sculpting Championships, bringing the best snow sculptors in the world to our hometown. There are many ways to enjoy the Snow Sculpture Championships:
Jan 16th-21st is technical week- the building of the 12 foot tall, 20 ton blocks.
Jan 24-28th is sculpting week- viewers are welcome to observe the work while its under construction.
Jan 28- Feb 5th is viewing of the finished sculptures- and don't forget to vote for your favorite.
The International Snow Sculpting Championships are held in the lot behind the Riverwalk Center at 150 West Adams Avenue- a short walk from our office. Please stop by and say hello while you are out and about, or better yet- we will be hosting a VIP Snow Sculpture party Thursday, January 26 from 5:30 pm-8 pm at the Thaw Lounge at the Riverwalk Center. We hope you can join us for this special VIP reception.
Lest you think ice and snow are the dominant themes in January, from the 26th-29th on the BreckCreate Campus adjoining the Riverwalk Center, the Fire Arts Festival will join the snow sculptures to inspire and delight. The Fire Arts Festival features fire sculptures, fire performances, hot arts demonstrations, live DJ sets and talks and tours.
Please remember to dress warmly for these events as they are held in high alpine winter conditions. Warm layers, hats and appropriate footwear will only increase your comfort and enjoyment.
