    I didn’t get to see much of the one here in San Diego but I was appalled at what happened after.

    The sand castle were are beautiful art which I expected to stay until the sea tide claimed them as their own. What happened instead, is that the children were allowed by the adults to destroy them. The kids went in and smashed at the sculpture with abandoned and glee. The parents all around them taking pictures of their hooligans literaly desecrating and vandalizing the art work.

    It was sad and I felt bad for the artist and this generation which shows no respect for Art or the Artist.
