The Giant Snow Head of 2017

Every winter, the Unverity of Brattleboro Art Faculty get together and create a giant snow head from a pile of snow in Brattleboro, in a fairly rudimentary salute to Brattleboro's famed sculpture, Larkin Mead. 

Here is this year's figure, created from a snow pile at the New England Youth Theater.

Send it to DC

I suggest we send it to Washington, or put it on top of a building.

From This Day In History, today:

1858: The Recording Angel statue has arrived safely in Washington, and is soon to be exhibited there. Permission has been obtained to set it up in the Rotunda of the Capitol, where it will be most accessible to members of Congress and visitors in the city. Mr. Mead is now engaged in modeling a figure for a statue to be placed on the dome of our State House by order of the Legislature.


Tis not worthy, but it was fun, and makes some people smile

Larkin Mead really does deserve a celebration of his work, in Brattleboro.

There should be an ice carving contest, by people who can actually carve.

Until such a time as when a proper celebration of Larkin Mead is organized,( and perhaps beyond), we will make goofy heads out of snow piles, because they make people smile. And people benefit from playful "art", no matter what sort of times they are living through, good, horrid, or in-between.
