|Sculpture located at Wormley's Art Park, by W.C. Wormley|
A melted Barbie Playhouse, multi-colored Bundt cakes, phallic structures made out of silicon caulk, and a sculpture that -- legend has it -- was made out of Elvis's driveway stand as monuments to the late great William Charles Wormley
. Known professionally as W.C., or Bill to his friends, Wormley died on June 7 of a heart attack while mowing his lawn. His sculpture-filled yard, hidden behind a fence at his house in northeast Minneapolis, rivals just about any official sculpture garden, and holds within it the legacy of an artist's artist who, according to his friend Dick Brewer, was known for his flamboyant outfits, his great parties, his sense of color and design, and his dedication to an artist's way of life.
