The Pond Was Our Canvas

March 9, 2011

In addition to the juried snow sculpture competition YouSnow, John Riepenhoff also organized The Pond is Our Canvas, a collaborative piece that was especially popular with the younger attendees of our Winter Carnival. Using watering cans and spray bottles filled with non-toxic food coloring, participants painted the little lake throughout the course of the day. Below, you can view some pictures taken during the event, as well as a few taken today, after time and weather have made their mark on the canvas as well.
