Elaborate Sand Labyrinth Coming to Florence
Florence, OR - Labyrinth artist Denny Dyke is bringing his popular natural and meditative art installation to Heceta Beach (in front of Driftwood Shores Resort - 88416 1st Avenue, Florence, OR 97439) on October 17! Returning guest artist David McMurray will once again add his talents to this year's beach draw.
Circles in the Sand was first created by Denny as a walking meditation and way to connect with the ocean and ever-changing sand. The first "Dreamfield" was created in 2014 and has been a favored attraction among coastal visitors whenever one is made.
Dreamfields have grown to be giant patterns, a garden of sand with several spirals and meandering paths that always return home. The "draw-out" starts at 3 p.m. with Denny teaching everyone how to create this amazing art form on the "canvas" of Heceta Beach. At 4:30 p.m., volunteers are welcome to help groom the labyrinth before the path walk begins at 5 p.m.
Plan a staycation by booking a room for the weekend. Travel Lane County's Florence hotel partners are eager to welcome you and while you are there be sure to take part in the Florence Chowder & Glass Float Trail. Pick up your passport from the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce, then go sample chowder from competing restaurants and try to win beautiful glass floats.
