WHO:  Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa – Northwest Florida’s largest full-service beachfront resort.
WHAT:  Northwest Florida’s premier full-service beachfront resort hotel has announced a partnership with the Underwater Museum of Art in South Walton, Florida. The resort has sponsored “The Wave” sculpture, a creation courtesy of American artist Benjamin Mefford. The sculpture, a larger-than-life hand, has been constructed to facilitate coral growth utilizing Kansas fencepost limestone columns. These repurposed columns are relics from early settlers who split each block using rudimentary techniques. Now fallen and cast aside, the limestone blocks offer a meaningful and useful sculptural material. Aligned next to each other, narrowly separated, and mounted to stainless steel rods, these columns will form the fingers and palm of the sculpture.
WHEN: The new sculpture project was launched at the beginning of July 2019.
WHEREThe Underwater Museum of Art is a permanent sculpture park located in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico off Grayton Beach State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The museum’s exhibits lie within a mile of the shore at a depth of 57 feet.
