The Oak Cliff Four

 Weird Art Made in Dallas: Weenies and Linoleum Lavatories for Lizards

For a brief shining moment in the early 1970s, it appeared that Dallas was about to become an "art center." The Oak Cliff Four (Bob Wade, George Green, Jack Mims, and Jim Roche) only lasted for a couple of years, but they were the product of years of cultivation by the very activist Dallas arts supporters during the 1950s and 60s.

The Oak Cliff Four was also a lot of fun. Too bad it didn't last. Forty years later, they're being remembered in Dallas.
