Sand Arts 2016

Time for another fun SCAD Signature Event update! Last weekend was our annual Sand Arts Festival hosted by the Foundations department, where students come together to show off their wind installations and build sand sculptures on-site at Tybee Island. The weather was perfect and the art was incredible! Such a fun day to spend hanging out with friends and appreciating the creativity all around us at SCAD.

The image on the left is a wind-powered sculpture that generates electricity to power a battery that can pull water back up inside the poles and flow out like a waterfall, designed by a SCAD Industrial Design student. On the right is a tunnel installation made by SCAD alumni specifically for Sand Arts! At one point during the day, a whole group of musicians dressed up as the "Beach Bowies" played Purple Rain inside of that tunnel. So much weird, cool stuff goes on at this school!
