and Design: The
original Snow Person design concept was developed and will be manufactured
by Raymond Paulin of RP Creations in Berlin, New Hampshire. (www.rpcreations.com)

molded fiberglass Snow Person will be approximately 5-feet in overall
height, plus a top hat of an additional (approximate) 12 inches.

have the option of attaching accessories to the fiberglass form
so long as they do not pose any danger to the public. Proposed additions
must be made clear in the design proposal and the adhesives used
to attach any extra pieces must follow guidelines provided by the
Snow People Coordinating Committee to ensure firm, stable attachment.
Please note: It is imperative that attachment be securely fastened
to the sculpture form since any sort of protrusion invites touching
and/manipulation by the public. See list of recommended materials
must be appropriate for family viewing, free of political, religious
or sexual messages and content disparaging of third parties. Designs
also may not include any direct reference to a specific product
or company name or be construed as advertising for the sponsor.
The Snow People on Parade Coordinating Committee reserves the right
to not include a design proposal in the sponsor selection pool.
whose designs are selected should make arrangements to receive the
sculpture at their studio. Artists will be required to work with
approved mediums and finishes, and clear coat the sculpture to assure
the longevity of the artwork on the fiberglass surface. All materials
must be able to withstand outdoor climatic conditions and be safe
and durable enough for the public to touch.
artists will be paid a stipend for participation. The amount
of the stipend will be totally negotiated between the artist and
the sculpture sponsor and is not the responsibility
of the Coordinating Committee. Artists will be acknowledged on an
identifying plaque on the base of the sculpture along with the sponsor
of the Snow Person.
proposals will be made available to Snow People sponsors who will
review the gallery to select the design(s) they wish to sponsor.
The Snow People on Parade Committee cannot guarantee that all designs
will be selected by sponsors. Once a design has been selected by
a sponsor, the artist will then enter into an agreement with the
sponsor. The Coordinating Committee is simply acting as a facilitator
in the process of bringing artists and sponsors together.
Snow People on Parade Committee will identify the artist in all
public uses and displays of the artist's design. The Snow People
on Parade Committee will have the right to photograph, videotape,
or record the image of any Snow Person during the production or
during the public display and to use any of those materials relating
to the Snow People for promotion and publicity of the event.
