Dear artful reader,
Do you have a pile of snow in your yard? Or are you planning on traveling to a museum or art show? I’m hoping that during the next month or so, you will be on the look out a “snow child.” I want to create a gallery on the website to share snow child images from around the world.
I’m viewing it through very loose guidelines. I’m hoping people search far and wide for different ways to imagine her. It could be an actual figure made out of snow in your yard, or a photograph, painting, sculpture or a piece of fiber art that somehow says “snow child” to you. It could be images of just snow flakes, or just children, or tracks in snow. I’m hoping somebody discovers an embroidered coat like the one the snow child wears. And I might even award a few little prizes.
I have collected a few images already, including an amazing illustration from a UK artist and, of course, the many book covers from around the world.
I won’t officially ask for you to send them until later in the winter. But I hope you will all begin to keep your eyes open. I can’t wait to see what you find.
