Florida Today Columnist Writes About Art of Sand Corporate Challenge Experience

Suzy Fleming Leonard, part of Florida Today’s Corporate Challenge for the Art of Sand Festival, recently recounted her team’s experience in the newspaper.

It was an unlikely grouping of co-workers, gathered much too early on a Saturday morning in what usually is an empty field in Cape Canaveral.

Our task: Create a sand sculpture as part of the Corporate Challenge at the Art of Sand festival.

The larger-than-life creations by international artists are amazing. They’ve created an outdoor museum of intricate buildings, dancers, statues and plants, all carved from sand.

The master artists’ works are mesmerizing.

But on that Saturday, we had our own masterpiece to think about.

She goes on to detail the preparation and execution of her team’s sculpture. And while they didn’t go home with the prize, she ended on a nostalgically positive note:

For a few hours on a Saturday in April, we enjoyed playing in the sand. We didn’t win the trophy. That went to Brandt-Ronat and Co. for its sea turtle nest.

But we still left with a prize.

We’d won a grown-up day that would make any child envious.

We’d have to agree!
