Clark has spent over 30 years building one of Atlanta's wildest art installations filled with surprising and fascinating local (and real) Atlanta history. For local Druid Hills-ians this is an absolute must stop and for those that aren't local or from out of town....this is an absolute must stop! Clark and Karas are wonderful jovial hosts and Clark really knows how to tell a personal and fascinating story.

This experience surpassed my expectations! I had been so excited when I saw this location on Airbnb experiences. I’ve been driving by this magical place for so many years, thinking wow so creative, I want to know who made all this. We were guided through a storyline of history meshing with art and the battles within. The artist tells where his mind was during his creation process and explains why he made certain details. Honestly, I was captivated and wanted to know all the things. He was also a talented musician who gave a small live performance. This experience would in my opinion be great for a date night, friends looking for something out of the ordinary, solo travelers, honestly anyone who can appreciate the artistic process. Between the story telling, philosophy, art, and music it can appeal to a wide variety of individuals.

I've driven by this amazing place for over 30 yrs wondering who the artist was and what was the motivation for the unique art on the hill. I no longer need to wonder. Clark is one of the most interesting people I've met in a very long time. Tonight was a special evening! Art, social commentary, history, music & hospitality made for a wonderful experience. I can't say enough about this special place hosted by two very generous people. Treat yourself to one of Decatur's best kept secrets.

If you’re considering doing this, do yourself a favor and do not miss it! This is guaranteed to be one of the most memorable nights to be had in Atlanta. This was wonderfully captivating & thought provoking. We had an amazing time. Great hosts and live music was awesome too!

From an experience/entertainment perspective, this was the best $50 ($25 x 2) we’ve spent in a long time. Clark is an amazing storyteller and what he’s created at Druid Hill is beyond belief. 3 hours flew by as we learned the history of the area, toured the property, and got a private concert to wrap things up. On the ride home we marveled at the fact that we’d driven by Druid Hill hundreds of times in the last 25 years and not known what a very special place it is.

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.
