Artist recreates Van Gogh’s Olive Trees over 1.2 acres in a Minnesota field

Van_Gough_FieldThis is neat.

Sixty-four-year-old artist Stan Herd transformed a field in Eagan, Minnesota into Van Gogh’s 1889 Painting Olive Trees. You can only see it from the air. It took six months, covers 1.2-acres, and was sponsored by the  Minneapolis Institute of Art.

“It’s an iteration of Van Gogh’s painting writ large in native plants and materials,” Herd told Star Media. And he told MPRNews, “It never looks like I want it to…I bit off a lot here, to try to pull this off. A few of the plants were eaten by deer, and a few were blown over. But that’s the dance of nature.”
