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.

How often do you get to be immersed within a work of art accompanied by the artist as he shares the fantasy and insight that inspired the creation... It's an experience of courageous imagination run wonderfully rampant! Highly recommend.

Go to the Mechanical Kingdom on Druid Hill!!! Clark is not only an amazing artist , singer, storyteller, and your host, but he teaches you history at this historic site! You'll come aware, enlightened, and knowledgeable, but mostly entertained like no other night out! I highly recommend this experience to all! We also got to socialize among the interactive art works and met some friendly souls that night. Art was towering to the skies, songs were sung ,and history was made under the stars. Friendly, clean restroom, places to sit, and also to mingle. 5 stars out of 5

Cool experience. Clark is a spectacular sculptor, and and is good at explaining the thoughts behind his work. The glimpse into how it all came to be- the work and the history of Druid Hill- is fascinating. Enjoyed the music, too. Welcoming hosts in a beautiful setting.

We have long been curious about the giant metal sculptures facing N Druid Hills Road, so when we saw an opportunity to learn more via this AirBnB Experience we jumped at it. Clark and Karas did not disappoint. The evening was a unique combination of art exhibit, history lesson, music, storytelling, and just generally enjoyable evening out. Group size is limited to ten visitors, which is about right for the space and the conversations. The descriptions are accurate, yet it still left room for enjoyable surprises. Thanks to Clark and Karas for sharing. One caveat: there is no safe way to walk to the house along N Druid Hills Rd. Not only are there no sidewalks, but overgrown bushes and underbrush on neighboring lots force you to walk on the roadway. Take a Lyft or Uber, or park in their driveway. And then ask DeKalb County to require pedestrian friendly transportation corridors.

Public art is a gift, and to have the artist be as open and welcoming as in this experience is a joy. Through the course of the evening, you have the opportunity to explore, learn, and be entertained. It's very comfortable and I highly recommend the experience.
