Sand Sculpture Festival Zandvoort
The EC Sand Sculpting has been inextricably linked to Zandvoort for several years now. What started in 2011 with an NK on Zandvoort soil, expanded in the following year to become a European Championship. A phenomenon that has since been organised annually in Zandvoort.
The theme for 2021 is “Landscape through the eye of the Master” and is linked to a national campaign that is being conducted internationally under the title “Ode to the Dutch Landscape”. From 3 to 9 May 2021, 6 artists from various European countries will be working hard on new sand artworks at various locations! In a week they 'carve' a mountain of sand of 4x4x4 meters into a work of art with fantastic details. The sand artists have every freedom to design the theme “Landscape through the eye of the Master” as they see fit. They can, for example, take a famous painting by a 17th-century master as a starting point, but also give their own interpretation of a future Dutch landscape. The sculptures will remain until the end of August 2021.
The participating carvers of 2021 are:
