Date of Work

Circa 1960


Four members of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority use a waterhose, a ladder, shovels, and ice scrapers to form their snow sculpture for the King Kold Karnival. The winter festival known as the King Kold Karnival was a staple at UND from 1951-1968. The event usually included contests, sled races, dances, beauty pageants, and most notably large snow sculptures. A brief resurgence emerged in 1979 but was not continued.
