Contests and Conceptual Pieces

City of long BEACH MARATHON

Donnie has been participating in sand castle and sand sculpture contest since 1985.   As a founding member of Archisand, the team has won numerous Masters Category contests in the state of California.  The conceptual pieces that have been created for many of these contests serve as enormously creative outlets for all of the sand sculptors involved and have allowed our team to make specific statements about the world around us.

“You borrow sand from the ocean for a short time, you make something wonderful from it, and then you return the sand to mother earth. It’s the most earth-friendly art form there is.”

-Donnie DeWees
