Daniel Van Allen, Selena and Spoon are at the center of Baltimore's art underground. Dan lives in Sowebo (Southwest Baltimore), where he has connected two row houses creating a rabbit warren of a dwelling. His house is packed with such disparate artifacts as found objects, animal skeletons, coconut heads, and other objects from his trips to India and Mexico. All of these objects become a unified art installation which he calls Visionary Environment. His pet chicken, Chick-a-pea, lives in Daniel's five connected backyards.
