Fourteen visual arts students and three professors will be out daily making temporary large-scale sand sculptures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through May 21.  

The students studied artists such as Calvin Siebert, Radovan Zivny, and Jim Denevan to prepare for their trip to the beach, according to a press release. The public is encouraged to come view their work, take pictures and ask questions about the sand sculptures.
