We loved this experience! Clark and Karas were very welcoming and wonderful hosts for an evening of art, history, and music. You can visit Druid Hill during the day, but we highly recommend taking advantage of attending this experience for an amazing behind-the-scenes experience with the artist.

The Mechanical Riverfront Kingdom (aka Commuter Gallery) is a treasure! Clark & Karas were excellent hosts and my life is richer for having visited Clark's kingdom on Druid Hill. It is truly a hidden gem. Clark has built something wonderful, magical and true! This a MUST visit spot. Not only does Clark take the time to open up his home and heart about his art and his personal passions, he presents them in a way that makes you want to take an active part in what he's built. Most of the sculptures are interactive and he has built a stove farm to keep the chill away. It's just a pleasure all around. He even played a private concert for us at the end of our walk & talk. It is an oasis from the slide and hustle of the "mechanical river" of Druid Hills Rd. that sits at the bottom of Druid Hill. He also give an in depth history of the area known as Druid Hill which I found engaging and enriching. What a wonderful experience for lover's of folk art! A magical night all around!

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.
