Melineige Beauregard

Sculpting Since: 2001
Location: Quebec, Canada

Some believe sand sculpting is art, some believe it’s a sport. While others, like Melineige, believe it’s a spiritual experience.  “When my hands touch the material, when my heart opens to give life, when my head is illuminated by light, I become the co-creator of the universe,” she said.  “An artist is one who spiritualizes matter.”  She should know.  Art is in her blood. Her father is internationally renowned sculptor Guy Beauregard, and like her father, she too has achieved international success.  In fact, in 2004 the father-daughter duo teamed to win the World Championship in the doubles category. Since then she has won more than 70 individual awards worldwide. “For me, art is a means of communication, a way to transmit the energy of life, to affirm its vastness and its beauty,” she waxed poetically.

USSSC + DAE is cancelled.

It was our great honor to have produced this iconic event for 8 years.  USA Today had named it to the ‘Top 10 in the Nation’ and American Express called it ‘one of the top 20 seaside festivals in the world’.

Hundreds of millions of media impressions were registered worldwide and over 40,000 attended the festivities each year on the downtown San Diego embarcadero. 

We thank the Master Sand Artists from Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas who created magnificent sculptures from nothing more than sand and water, as well as the artists who work in other media, the entertainers, food providers, sponsors, media, staff, suppliers, volunteers and the Port of San Diego who made the event possible.

Should a title sponsor or new production company wish to bring it back to benefit local non-profits and the Southern California community at large, we will endeavor to help advise as long as we are able. 

For now, enjoy the website from years past.*

Thank you once more.
