Anybody who frequents our beaches has seen shell displays on, or near the beaches without an owner . . . no guardian, gatherer, or arranger (artist).
Artist and audience separated . . . forever.
We have a name for the arrangements “left behind” – “PSD(s)” (public shell display(s)).
PSDs are awesome! A pile of “unwanted” shells is not necessarily a PSD. PSDs are arranged, and care is shown in their displays (like the one above)*.
We have seen so, so many PSDs. Some were elaborate, some very simple. If you see a nice one, send it our way!

*the PSD above was found on the “mystery” steps along the path of Sanibel Access 1. Whoever created this display . . . . thanks!
