Snow Dango Contest

Presented by the Albright-Knox and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House

The Albright-Knox and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House want to see your snow dangos inspired by The Space Between: Frank Lloyd Wright | Jun Kaneko.

Jun Kaneko’s dangos are sculptures named for a Japanese term for dumplings and other gently rounded forms. We encourage you to build your own dangos out of snow and share photos of your frosty creations for a chance to win prizes. We encourage you to explore elements of color, shape, and line, and decorate your dangos with found objects, fabric, paints, food dyes, and more!

Submissions are now closed. All photos of snow dangos submitted by midnight on February 28 are eligible to win prizes for Best in Show, Most Creative, and People’s Choice.

Vote for your favorite snow dango here!

Voting closes on March 14 and winners will be announced on March 15.
