Location: Hampton Beach, New Hampshire
Dates: June 20-23, 2001
Particulars: This event was a first for Hampton Beach but I suspect it will not be the last.... did you catch the blurb on CNN? Host-sculptor Greg Grady and Uncle Bob the marketing whiz and lots of other civic-minded heros made sure that all 10 competing sculptors had super sand, plenty of margaritas and a good good time.
With this sculpture I took on the challenge of making my sandpile suggest water. I think - to a certain extent - that I was successful. Might come back and explore this idea again some day...
