DinoHenge Whacktasticness (Closed)

DinoHenge Whacktasticness --closes  Thurs 1 Nov 2012. Oddest. Exhibit. Ever. (Wonderfully so!)  FoamHenge/DinosaurLand sculptor Mark Cline, DC pubs decorator Lee Wheeler, and zen-chainsaw sculptor Glenn Richardson amuse the weirder parts of your mind.  Art peekers welcome 9-5 weekdays.  Aware that the arts get little news coverage and visual art almost never gets broadcast attention, WMRA, as a service to the region's creative community, has provided visual artists a place to show (and occasional airtime too) since 2005 . 

The artists now showing:

Mark Cline:
Of FoamHenge and DinosaurLand fame.
Theme park structures fabricator and publicity-stunt genius.
Exhibited at the Taubman Museum of Art.
Recovering fabricator of Jellystone campground giant Yogi Bear mascots.
(And past guest of The Spark on WMRA.)

Glenn Richardson:
H Street Festival repeat exhibitor.
Recovering high-end landscape designer.
(Detailed statement here.)

Lee T Wheeler:
Pub paradigm-shifter (sculptor/muralist).
Decorated bars in DC (Argonaut, Rock-N-Roll Hotel, H Street Country Club, Alliance, Lush, Asylum, Trustys, Reef, The Scoop) and sometimes in NY (Bowlmor Lanes Times Square, Greenwich Village Country Club).
Recovering  tattooist.
