Sculpture Title: Look at Dat Der Buck, Eh
Artist Statement: The sculpture consists of the bust of a mature whitetail deer buck, surrounded by a garland of white oak leaves and acorns. A buck sporting a rack of antlers can be a breathtaking sight if your a hiker or hunter, or a nuisance if you're a garden or car hood. In either case it's quintessentially a symbol of the Midwest. The sculpture is a tribute to the Midwest and all those hikers, hunters, and everyone else enjoying the north woods.
- Adam Warmack (Captain) - I began snow sculpting in 2001 as part of Michigan Tech University Winter Carnival. Since then, I've been lucky to move up through the ranks and have traveled the world snow sculpting. Some highlights include winning a 3rd Place in Harbin China in 2018 and being asked to sculpt for Jeep and ESPN at the Winter X Games. I'm originally from Grayslake, IL but, now am a proud Detroiter who spends his days developing infotainment systems for cars. I also enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, sailing, and generally being outdoors.
Dan Povolo - Snow Carving 31 years Structural Engineer. Hobbies include cross country skiing, snowshoeing, triathlons, and fishing.
Marko Masnjak - My snow carving hobby began while attending Michigan Technological University in Houghton, MI, where it snowed 6-months out of the year. While it started as a campus activity to pass the winter months, it turned into a reunion with great friends, new and old, local and international, that I look forward to every year. I was born, raised, and currently live in Chicago with my wife, 2 kids, and a dog, where I work as a product designer in the technology industry.
