Hi -- I am REALLY hoping to reach an art teacher in or around the DesMoines
area in the next 24 hours. You have a chance in a life time opportunity to
host a visit by the Offical Artist of the United Nations, Wyland. Wyland is a
world famous marine life whale muralist who's goal in life is to paint 100
life sized whale murals around the world -- called "Whaling Walls." He has
completed 80 to date. Anyway, he is in the middle of a "50 states in 50 days"
educational tour. He is touring with a gorgeous 18 wheeler semi (with life
sized whales painted on the side) loaded with Pacific beach sand and other
treasures from the ocean, a huge beautifully painted tour bus and a crew of
friendly, enthusiastic assistants ready to stop at your school THIS MONDAY,
SEPTEMER 21!!! Wyland was at my school yesterday, September 16, and it was
absolutely the highlight of my art teaching career!!! Wyland's group set up a
fantastic, educational, artist assembly for my school (550 elementary
students) which ended with Wyland and 30 students painting together to create
a FABOLOUS 20' mural in our school. PLEASE check out Wyland's web site at and email me immediately or call me at home at
605-371-2325 or at work tomorrow at 605-367-4580. As of this moment, no
school has signed up for this opportunity. Take it from someone who is still
beaming with the thrill of meeting and working with Wyland -- YOU DEFINITELY
