SALT LAKE CITY — 20 tons of sand were delivered and dumped on the Utah Arts Festival grounds at 200 East and 400 South. Sand artist Ted Seibert will move in for the week at the Festival and create a giant sand sculpture. The work will be complete mid-Festival sometime between June 21 and June 24. Festival attendees will be able to watch the sand evolve into a work of art.
Seibert is at the helm of the Sand Sculpture Company, which is know for its outrageously large and detailed work.

Adult admission is $10 at the gate, $7 in advance. Children 12 and under are free. Seniors 65 and above are $5. Reduced adult admission is $5 and available from noon to 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
