a few local snow sculptors discuss their work

the shoveler, ed pitney, takoma park. "it's a tragic portrait of modern man in his futile battle with indifferent nature, pausing to have a back spasm."

replica of the east building of the national gallery (lifesize), bob delgado, hyattsville. "it was an accident, really. i shoveled out my driveway & that's how it piled up. in '96 i accidentally did the hirshhorn."

bob ryan
heroic bust of bob ryan, joy roop, dc.
"this piece just flowed from my sub-conscious after staring at weather-man bob ryan on tv for 3 days."

the awakening (verso), milo hubka, arlington. "i thought, what if i turn the hains point sculpture upside down so his rear end's stickin' out? and boy, do the neighbors hate it!"
