Check Out This Amazing Van Gogh Crop Circle
Okay, so technically it’s not a crop circle, but it’s in a crop and it’s pretty freakin’ impressive. I’ve used a lot of different mediums for my art, but I’ve never thought of using an entire field filled with pumpkins, squash, and watermelon to recreate a masterpiece.
The Minneapolis Institute of Art commissioned landscape artist and painter Stan Herd to create an earthen likeness of van Gogh’s “Olive Trees“ (1889), which is now on display at MIA. Planting pumpkins, squash and watermelon, Herd sculpted his 1.5-acre version of the painting in honor of the 125th anniversary of the artist’s death.
