"Sandscapes has produced extraordinary works of art for us for many years. Their work is excellent and they are extremely professional in all dealings, highly recommended."
~ Paula Ellis, Canadian National Exhibition
"The sand sculpture was, without a doubt, the most successful single promotion during our 15 years of presenting a music and food festival.
It was interesting to note that our three network television affiliates and two daily newspapers began publicizing sand sculpting from the day we dropped the sand until well after the event. Sand sculpting also made a great backdrop for "live" news and weather reports. I commend you for the absolutely outstanding job performed by you and your team in the construction of our sand sculpture"
~Tim R. Quigley, CFE - Bayfest Director
"What started out an exciting summer promotion still continues to captivate new and repeat customers eight months later. Never has a promotion at County East Mall attracted so much attention from both tenants, customers and the local media."
~Gina Indelicato - County East Mall
"I was impressed with the professionalism and adaptability of your operation, and dazzled by the results!... and I probably don't have to remind you how much attention the sculpture got from the media."
~Missy Kinder - California State Fair
When the Going Gets Tough...
"From start to finish you battled extraordinary circumstances but you never let them hinder you from getting the job done. I think you should advertise that you get the job done even when the U.S. Post office can't." (Referring to the Broadway Mall sand sculpture created during a blizzard)
~Mindy Dutka - Small Happenings, NY
"We are so thrilled you managed to sculpt all 6 celebrities. Thank you so much for making this happen on such short notice. The sculptures are amazing!!
~Caitlin Kelly, - Alison Brod Public Relations
"The sculpture generated much interest with both the television and print media, capturing front-page coverage for the local newspapers around the county.
The exposure generated by the sand sculpture helped make this year's fair a tremendous success, hitting record-breaking proportions. Thanks again for your creativity, hard work and participation in this year's festivities."
~Becky Bailey-Findley - General Manager Orange County Fair

"Sandscapes took my one sentence description and turned it into a masterpiece, better than I had ever imagined... Flexible, easy to work with, friendly and interactive with our guests. Thank you for a wonderful project.
~ Toby Wagner - Dollywood Special Events
"What a wonderful experience working with Sandscapes has been. All of us at the Arizona State Fair as well as visiting Fair dignitaries, media, patrons, sponsors, have been thrilled about the sculpture and what a truly inspiring work it is. From our Marketing Department to our media partners and our commercial sponsor it was reassuring to have Sandscapes turn the project idea we spent 8 months developing into such an incredibly wonderful exhibit."
~Martin Dickey – Arizona State Fair
"For fifteen years everything Sandscapes has done for us has been awesome. Each year our patrons look forward to the sculpture and it continues to be a highlight of the fair.

"Our Spirit of a Nation sand sculpture was a spectacular accomplishment... 600 tons of Canadiana! The sculpture also produced some spectacular press tonnage as well!"
