Earliest Citation:
It's the latest work of crop art by Stan Herd of nearby Lawrence.
Herd, 36, who normally does conventional-sized paintings of rural Kansas landscapes and murals depicting scenes of the Old West, in the last five years has created three works of crop art so immense that it has been possible to view them only from the air.
In 1981 the crop artist did a 160-acre portrait of Kiowa Indian chief Satanta out of wheat and stubble. Two years later he did a 160-acre portrait of Will Rogers in wheat, milo and plowed earth. Both were on farms near Dodge City.
