Playoff excitement is in the air at Lambeau Field, and to help celebrate the postseason atmosphere, three large snow sculptures are being created to greet visitors this weekend to the Packers Playoff Pep Rally and Divisional Playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Team USA Snow Sculpting is creating the three large Packers-themed snow sculptures. The Harlan Plaza in front of the Lambeau Field Atrium will be home to one sculpture, and the Oneida Nation Gate and Verizon Wireless Gate will host the other two sculptures.
Large blocks of snow were created Wednesday for the project, with sculpting work to begin Thursday morning. The carving process will continue through the day and is expected to be completed Friday afternoon.
The sculpture located on the Harlan Plaza will be 12 feet long, 7 feet wide and 12 feet high. The other two sculptures will be 4 feet long, 4 feet wide and 8 feet high.
Team USA Snow Sculpting, whose artists are Wisconsin natives, has 20 years of experience in fine art snow sculpting. A recipient of numerous national and international awards, the group has completed more than 140 snow sculptures at festivals around the world.
