What Was Hiding In This Minnesota Field Will Blow Your Mind

Minnesota happens to have one of the most phenomenal and diverse art communities around, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art proved it last year when, as part of their 100 year celebration, they commissioned renowned crop artist Stan Herd to create Van Gogh’s Olive Trees painting in this Thomson Reuters field.

It turned out to be one of the most stunning works of art, and we desperately want to see more of this creative planting in the coming year! MIA also incorporated the project into their 100 Videos Project. See the finished product in this stunning flyover footage, and watch the video background below!

Can you believe how beautiful that was? For a more detailed background about Stan Herd and his masterpiece watch this 100 Videos Project Episode!

You can find more information about MIA on their website or Facebook, and don’t forget to show your appreciation for them and all the amazing artists they support!
