Ideas are being accepted through 5 p.m. Tuesday for Sand in the City, a temporary public art installation that will be carved from 20 tons of sand. The sculpture will be created later this month and will remain in Triangle Park for three weeks.
The sculpting will be done by Damon Farmer, a Woodford County artist who works in a variety of mediums but is best known as an international grandmaster sand sculptor. Farmer has been the World Champion, American Champion and North American Sand Sculpting Champion multiple times. He has sculpted sand for display and competitive events in China, Puerto Rico, Japan, Canada, Spain, Mexico, England, France and Italy, as well as many locations in the United States.
The public may submit ideas for the sculpture to firstname.lastname@example.org. All workable ideas will be presented to LexArts’ Public Art Committee for further review. LexArts will present five ideas to Farmer, who will then choose the winning design.
