Castles in the sand, Goldilocks, Cinderella, and even the Tower of Babel can be found at the Eretz Israel Museum outdoor exhibit “Tales in the Sand” which opens tomorrow, July 20, 2011. 18 giant sand sculptures, each about 4 meters high, have been created by sculptors from the World Sand Sculpting Academy in Hague and Israeli sculptors for a unique nighttime experience just right for summer.

The sand sculptures are lovely, with character, charm and fine details, all dramatically lit for nighttime viewing. For those who want to try their hand at the art, there is a huge sandpit with instructors available to give friendly advice. Guy Melamed is the artistic director of the exhibit, which will be open from 19:00 to 23:00, through the end of August. Eretz Israel Museum, 2 Haim Levanon Street, Tel Aviv, 03-6415244.
