Event: SandFest

Location: Port Aransas, TX

Dates: March 30-31, 2001

Particulars: This was my third contest in a month and my sore arm was definitely a factor. I pulled the subject matter from current business news headlines and quite frankly don't think the judges "got it." That's okay, the spectators that did get it seemed to enjoy it and appreciated my efforts to create a sculpture that would make people think. I call it economic theory translated into sand.
