SAND SCULPTURE in Central Parklet
Festival goers can watch something incredible emerge over several from a 25 ton pile of sand in Sidney Friedman Park.
Sand sculptor Greg Glenn is a founding partner of Sandscapes and has been a full-time sand sculptor since 1987. He has performed at hundreds of events and assignments around the world. Originally a land surveyor, Greg got his sand sculpture start at competitions on Southern California beaches and quickly made the transition to professional sand sculptor filling key roles in many world record sand sculptures. In addition, he has numerous international, national, regional sand sculpture titles, including 12 separate World Sand Sculpture Championships in both team and solo categories.
Greg was one of the original four full-time sand sculptors operating as Sand Sculptors International in the mid to late 1980's. Many of the techniques and procedures developed and refined by this group are now the standard in professional and competitive sand sculpture.
When not working in the sand Greg spends his spare time as an avid mountain biker, hiker and kayak angler off the Central California coast. Greg is a member of Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers and is active in State Parks trail planning and maintenance. Born and raised in Huntington Beach, California Greg and his wife Brandi now reside in San Luis Obispo, California.
