Snow Art in Somerville

It's winter, it's cold, it's nasty, and our chalk is stowed safely away for the drier months and cleaner pavement. And with it, we ourselves are resting woefully inside, twiddling our thumbs listlessly. Right?

Wrong! We're ready to go out and create! We've learned of an excitingly awesome outdoor adventure taking place in Somerville's Union Square, this Saturday, January 15th., produced by the Artisan's Asylum:

Artisan's Asylum, in coordination with the Somerville Art Council's ArtsUnion Winter Series, is happy to announce that this Saturday will be a day of hilarious public snow art. The city will be providing a giant pile of snow (courtesy of the snow storm on Wednesday) and a bunch of shovels, and Cantina La Mexicana will be providing Mexican h...ot chocolate! All we have to do is make big displays of public art around the square. No problem, right?

Grab your gloves and jackets and come help us build snow forts, scenes from Calvin & Hobbes, elaborate snow sculpture and anything else you can imagine! Even if you don't have an idea for an art piece, come by anyway and help us lug massive amounts of snow around the square. If you want to bring stuff, bring shovels, trowels, buckets, and any other snow-shaping tools you can imagine.

1-4pm.  It's free and open to all ages!

To get there by MBTA bus: 85 from Kendall; 86 from Sullivan, Harvard or Cleveland Circle; 87 from Lechmere; 91 from Central; or the CT2.
