2013 SCAD Sand Arts Festival

Sand, sun, and more sand is what you saw if you were on beautiful Tybee’s north end of the beach on May 10th. SCAD held its annual Sand Arts Festival on Friday. The participants were able to choose to create sand art sculptures from the following categories: Sand Castles, Sand Sculptures, Sand Reliefs, and Wind Sculptures. Rewards were to be given for the best in each category along with an award for the best underwater creature from the first three categories sponsored by Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary.
So if you happened to be on Tybee and saw a giant Octopus, maybe a mermaid, or strange “creatures” crawling out of the sand, it was not just your imagination. Instead, they were wonderful creations of the ever so talented professors, staff, students, and alumni of Savannah College of Art and Design!
