A Bellefonte Area High School graduate dug into the sand last month on Tybee Island, Ga. — and, in the end, she had the judges digging her sand sculpture.
Last month, the current current Savannah College of Art and Design student was recognized for a sand sculpture she helped create at the annual SCAD Sand Arts Festival on the island’s south beach.
Tallie DuBois, according to a report on behalf of the fest, helped design a winning piece of sand art called “SCADopoly.”
Winning the top prize, DuBois — along with classmates David Harris, Haley Nichols and Noah Osuna — reportedly carved a game board-like design in the sand similar to a Monopoly game board.
Instead of game spaces like jail, it had “graduation.” And instead of cards like “Chance” or “Community Chest,” it included dining dollars.
The winning team received $1,500.
According to a report from the college, more than 500 SCAD students, alumni, faculty and staff participated in the event that was sponsored by the School of Foundation Studies.
DuBois is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration.
