Whether you’re visiting for the weekend or lived here 50 years like me, this is a hidden gem and a truly unique opportunity not to be missed. You will get to spend an intimate, private evening with a brilliant and entertaining artist and philosopher who has transformed Druid Hill into a site for the ages. If you are lucky enough to have found this event accept that fortune has smiled on you. Invite some good friends and don’t miss this one!! PS - I have been here twice with folks ranging in ages from 18 to 85.

An astonishing odyssey of the artist and his creations. Evocative, insightful, redemptive. A unique and fascinating experience. Clark put his all into being Virgil to our Dante.

I've driven by this house for decades, admired the sculptures and wondered about the artist. What a delight to meet him, hear his stories, see the artwork up close, and learn about the history of the area. A real Atlanta treasure! Highly recommend.

Not only do you get to experience some pretty amazing metal sculpture art, but you get the pleasure of meeting Clark and hearing some interesting history about the surrounding land and the inspiration behind his “metal men.” A wonderful host with loads of stories to tell! A Unique experience for art, music and history lovers alike right outside of downtown Atlanta!

Clark artfully manufacturers psychic unity using commuters as raw materials. His monuments to the folly of human constructs on Druid Hill ranks with Howard Finster’s “Paradise Garden”.

Don't miss this experience. Seriously, it is Cool, and Interesting and Unique. It was much deeper and more interesting than I had expected it to be and I was expecting a great experience. Clark adds dimensions to the sculptures through his storytelling and music and anecdotes. The themes and histories are fascinating. Oh, yeah, and the sculptures - yikes, supercool.
