"Simply elegant" is
a way this edition of the show has been described.
But to be sure, it was far from simple to execute. It features a perspective
aspect that comprises the largest part of the overall effect.
This had to be done just so, or the entire effect would fall flat.
I am delighted to report we had no such problems.
To pull it all off, required this time, -perhaps more than ever before, the
concerted efforts of 12 of the best artists working in the industry of modern
commercial sand sculpture today.
& I am very happy to say, this version of the team really nailed it.
In spite of the decades of experience and 'mad skilz' these accomplished
artisans hold collectively and as individual craftspersons, the end result
was a fully collaborative work.
It was designed as well as mostly directed by the esteemed Mr. Damon
Farmer, of Versailles, Kentucky.
But as usual, the help of the art students laboring for us in exchange for
college credit, and the dedication and hard work of the Jesolo Patrimonio
group, allowed for us to realize in the end result, a sand opera of the highest
Well on a par for what the city of Jesolo has come to be known for.
A hearty thanks to all.
But not least of which is the continued support of the city and the mayor
of same, Valerio Zoggia.
With a special thanks to my assistant (the real boss) Dr. Elena Lana.
