…”A pop-up art installation, common to stumble upon on city streets, was now on the sandy sides of the beachwalk in Seaside, Florida. New York sculptor, Judith Modrak, an artist in residence with Seaside’s Escape to Create was on-site interpreting her project, “Thought Storm.” Using a painted resin casts, she created a series of sculptures inspired by the area’s live oaks and rare sand dunes. Vacationers from all over the country walking by congregated around these whimsical creatures in the afterglow of the sunset. I was not expecting to share the end of my day with new friends and sculptures on the beach, but that’s Seaside.”
