Re: Ocean Theme Ideas-Wyland

Wyland does all of the "whale walls" as a community service public art work.
He takes no money for the walls...he does however get paid for his
sculptures, paintings and jewelry. He is one of the most down to earth
people that has had a true calling and has followed it. He gives back much
more than he takes.
He has a new student ocean challenge coming his web site for
more information. The '99 Ocean Challenge was awesome and was the
celebration, I was there!
