On July 15th at the Malta lake starts the first festival of sand sculpture.
At the Malta lake (near the Malta Thermal Baths), 500 tones of sand will turn into 8 unique pieces of art. July 15th , the first POZnań Sand Festival starts. 10 artists will take part in the event and effects of their work can be seen until the end of August. Additionally, in the evening the creations will be illuminated.
Main theme of the sculptures is endangered species. However, their final look will stay a mystery until the end of works, being July 23rd. Since then till the very end of August they will be fully revealed to the audience.
There is a winter version of an event – the POZnan Ice Festival, which attracts the most famous artists and tourists from all over the world. The city hopes that summer version will be at least as good.
