8. Sand Celebration opens at Brookfield Place’s Waterfront Plaza
As an ode to the summer beach season, Brookfield Place will present Matt Long’s professional sand sculpture Sand Celebration, New York City’s tallest sandcastle. Known for being an original cast member on the hit Travel Channel show Sand Masters, Long has competed and placed in many Master Sand Sculpting contests. Currently, he holds a 2nd-place medal for competing on team USA in 2010 and a 3rd-place medal in the 2013 doubles division.
Sand Celebration features hyper-realistic stone patterning on the walls, a collection of alluring towers, and even sand perfectly sculptured to mimic flowing water. Sand Celebration will be on display at Brookfield Place’s Waterfront Plaza through August 14.
