Philadelphia Phillies Sand Sculpture

I was commissioned to come back to Citizens Bank Park again in June of 2014 to create this 10 ton sand sculpture. It is a sculptural challenge to create a sand rendition of the Phillie Phanatic not so much because of his shape but because of the jumble of green fur that covers him! Based on the Phanatics reaction and everyone else at the stadium during the homestand that saw it I can say mission accomplished!

As you can see from all the smiles this 10 ton sand sculpture at Phillies Citizan Bank Park is engaging. While the Phillie Phanatic wonders about his reflection in the sand, David Montgomery, Philadelphia Phillies CEO and Elizabeth Cartmell President of the Atlantic City Alliance show the magical affect that a sand sculpture can have on everyone, even in a Major League Baseball park.
What a great time it was sculpting this piece at the stadium! Every one of the Phillies staff were just excellent to work with. The sculpture took three days to complete. Its composition was designed to promote the Professional Sand Sculpting competition in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
