A Sand-sational Way to Greet Summer at Kentucky Oaks Mall

Is it time to hit the beach?  Well, maybe not quite yet but a trip to Kentucky Oaks Mall will make you feel like you’ve arrived.  Center Court will soon be the home to It’s a Sandsational Celebration.  From April 21 through 24, professional sand sculptors will turn over 20 tons of sand into a unique work of art that honors the artistic culture of the Paducah area.  Spectators are welcome to stop by, watch the sculptors work and maybe even pick up a few tips for your own creations.  It’s a Sandsational Celebration, sponsored by Stratemeyer Media, will be on display in Kentucky Oaks Mall’s Center Court for 12 weeks.

 

The creative force behind It’s a Sandsational Celebration will be sculptor Matt Long.  Since 2001, Long has created innumerable sand sculptures around the world for competitive, civic and corporate events.  He has placed in four World Championship competitions and was a cast member for the Travel Channel show Sand Masters.  He has created sand sculptures in far-flung venues like Thailand, New Zealand and New York’s Times Square.  Assisting Long will be fellow sculptors Brian Belcher, Brian Wigglesworth, Andy Daily, Greg Grady, Karen Fralich and Matthew Deibert.

A helping hand for storm victims

The road to recovery is a long one for those who were affected by the deadly tornadoes that tore through western Kentucky on December 11.  The philanthropic arm of Kentucky Oaks Mall is contributing to that effort.  The Cafaro Foundation has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with disaster relief.  Additional donations were contributed to the Red Cross through a portal on the mall’s website.

For more information on ways to assist recovery efforts, you can find your local chapter’s contact information by searching your zip code at www.redcross.org.
