In a continued effort to bring art outside the museum’s walls and into the community in new and surprising ways, the Minneapolis Institute of Art has commissioned renowned crop artist Stan Herd to create a planted version of the beloved van Gogh’s Olive Trees painting.
Planting began this spring and the final piece has revealed itself! It has been exciting to watch it grow and it will remain intact through the fall of 2015! The field location was chosen specifically so that the growing art can be seen from many flights coming and going from MSP airport. If you spot it, snap a pic and share it with #BDayMia #vangrow!
Special thank you to Thomson Reuters for sharing their field with the museum in celebration of the Birthday Year.
