Much to our chagrin and due to circumstances beyond our control, the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition will go on hiatus again for 2022. The Port of San Diego and all of us involved in producing the event regret that this decision had to be made. It takes nearly a full year to schedule the world’s greatest Master Sculptors to compete in this world-renowned competition, and the Covid-19 virus only recently gave us a bit of a breather
. . . not enough time to put it together for this year.
Our thanks to the sand sculptors outside the U.S. and within who have thrilled us in the past with their amazing art, to the dimensional artists who work in other media who have exhibited at our event, and to the entertainers, food providers and broadcast, print and online media who helped make this “one of the top 20 seaside festivals in the world”, according to American Express. We look forward to returning to San Diego in 2023, dates to be announced.
In the meantime, support your local artists, sand and otherwise. Go out and have fun. And be safe.
Joyce, Gordon, Bruce, Tricia, Steve and the entire USSSC team
