Calvin Seibert's Sand Castles

Calvin Seibert, born 1958, is a Manhattan artist who gets away from it all every summer by going to Rockaway Beach in Queens and building sand castles.
Since coming to New York 35 years ago, Mr. Seibert has tired of seeking exhibitions for his sculptures and drawings. “I found it a hassle making art for shows,” he said. “I like to see results at the end of the day.” So he began making sand structures, not drizzle-turreted castles strewn with seashells, but rather modernist buildings with fantastical twists that reflected his love of progressive design. 
So enjoy your bit of summer whimsy for this week.
