CLEVELAND — A frosty new addition is now on display inside the Cleveland Museum of Art.

A life-size sculpture, appropriately called “Snowman”, has been unveiled in the museum’s Ames Family Atrium. 

The piece was first constructed by Swiss artists Peter Fischli (b. 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012) in 1987. The copper sculpture is coated in frost and filled with water. According to the museum, its box encasement creates a microclimate that remains humid, causing condensed water to collect on the surface of the copper base and freeze. 

“Snowman” will remain on display through Sept. 6.
