It keeps threatening to rain here on Long Island and then it doesn’t. So we are in a drought.
As it turns out it was a good thing because Long Beach has a Sand Sculpture exhibit that would have been washed away.
Sand sculpture is ephemeral, fragile. Like
our planet which is under a state of siege on all fronts.
Most especially from the massive oil leak fouling the waters in the Gulf of Mexico.
These sculptures tell the story. Artists names were nowhere listed on website just sponsor names so here’s what I could gather in no particular order: Matthew Deibert of Atlantic City, NJ; Attilio “Steven” Topazio, Tiverton, Rhode Island; Meredith Corson, Treasure Island, Florida; Andy Gertler, Sea Cliff, Long Island, NY; Greg Grady, http://www.greggrady.com;Dan Doubleday, Treasure Island, Florida; Kirk Rademaker, Somewhere in the woods of Northern California.
