It’s a weekend full of art, live music and an amazing sand sculpture created in real time during the event! What will Kali Bradford create this year? You’ll have to see it to believe it!
International Sand Sculpture, Kali Bradford’s career has spanned more than 30 years, where she has traveled the world creating scalable and detailed sand sculptures, ranging from three foot displays, to a 64 foot architectural installation. She’s sculpted sand in China, Australia, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, and India as well as throughout the United States. A multi-media artist, Bradford also paints, writes poetry and teaches. Kali is a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) recipient, and has been granted awards on nine separate occasions in California, and two in Washington as an artist-in-residence. Kali say, “Sand sculpture is art happening, a performing art, a positive addiction that gives satisfaction to the participants with its multi-task emphasis, so that whether you are the water carrier, using a shovel or carving the finest details it is easy to be enamored with the process as well as the end product.”
