While Miami Art Week took over South Florida last weekend, a low-key but incredibly cool art event recently took place to the south in Key West: the third annual International Sand Art Competition.

Held at Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria, the five-day sand sculpting event takes place around Thanksgiving, with contestants using only sand and water to create their masterpieces.

This year’s winner Morgan Rudluff with 'Unravel, Break, Mend.’
