This is a sculpture from the 2013 World Sand Sculpting Competition in Atlantic City NJ.
From the late 1800's to 1943 Atlantic city was host to numerous professional sand sculptors made a fair living entertaining the huge crowds with their spectacular creations that lined the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. Sand sculptors continued to entertain crowds in Atlantic City through the thirtys and early Forties. Unfortunately, after several decades of these successful exhibitions, a handful of con artists took advantage of the huge crowds these sculptures generated and caused a pick pocket panic frenzy that lead to the outlawing of sand sculpting exhibitions on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 1944. This law is actually still on the books to this day.
Now 70 years later, it is only fitting that the Joe Maize memorial trophy and Marc Altamare memorial trophy will be calling Atlantic City home this Summer, 2013. Charlie and Suzanne, now joined by John Gowdy will continue to make strides and advancements in the world of competitive sand sculpting and continue the effort of gathering some of the best, brightest and most entertaining artists ever seen together in one location. Please join them June 13 - 30, 2013 in Atlantic City and see first hand what all the buzz is about. You won't be disappointed!
