Couldn't grab either tag. Had to go do horse stuff...

Hopefully I can snag one soon, though.

Nice grab and place. Don't forget to add the name of the place or location/signif of the tag for us out-of-towners tuning in. Also, anyone made a Bridge Hell Area tag map yet?

I went down to the VB oceanfront thinking it was the one down there....nope that was not it. Backtracked on I-264 west, got off on Waterside Drive in Norfolk, turned left at the first light and there is it on the right side.

Got it....




info...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Whaling_Walls

and...

Robert Wyland (born. 1956 in Detroit, Michigan), known simply as Wyland, is an artist best known for painting large, outdoor murals of whales and other ocean life.
He grew up in Madison Heights, Michigan and attended Lamphere High School. His 25th "whaling wall" is in the pool area of the high school. His parents Darlene Wyland and Bob Wyland divorced when he was four. He has brothers Steve, Bill, and Tom.
Wyland also painted a dome on the roof of his alma mater at Lamphere High School during the fall of 1999. That same fall, the dome was vandalized by members of Lamphere's rival high school, Madison High School. Wyland's vandalized painting was consequently covered up with a white coat of paint, and remains that way to this day.
Wyland divides his time between Oahu, Hawaii; Laguna Beach, California; and Florida. He had established a goal of painting 100 Whaling Walls by 2011. He reached his goal in 2008 by creating his 100th Whaling Wall in Beijing China to celebrate the [Green Olympics].
In June 2006, Wyland painted a mural on a wall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for the annual "Del Mar Fair" while locals watched him work.
Since 2003, the Wyland Foundation has embarked on a five-year touring schedule to promote art, science, and conservation. The program has reached children along the East Coast, West Coast, and the Mississippi River regions. To date, the Wyland Foundation has conducted tour events in more than 35 states, Mexico, and Canada, reaching more than 50 million people. In 2007, the artist, along with science educators and volunteers, conducted a national tour for clean water, themed, "From Pike's Peak to the Chesapeake Bay — Every Drop Counts," to raise awareness through art and science about protecting watersheds nationwide. Activities include water quality testing at rivers, bays and lakes, a pledge drive to reduce water waste, mural painting with children, life-size mazes about water conservation, and a 1,000 square foot clean water learning center on wheels, featuring exhibits about the future of river management, lake regions, estuaries, and wetlands.
