 Brighten North St. Paul with exceptional Snowy Sculptures

Project Snowy is a community art project aimed at showing City spirit, supporting the arts community, and contributing to the cityscape with art using snowman statues. Businesses and organizations can purchase a Snowy statue, which will then be decorated by a local artist. The decorated statues can be placed at a location owned by the purchaser, or the purchaser can choose to donate the statue for placement on City property, creating a unique public art display that showcases the creativity and talent of our community.
