- Landscape portrait inspired by Vincent van Gogh's "Olive Trees"
- It will be on display through the fall
A giant landscape portrait inspired by Vincent van Gogh's "Olive Trees" was recently completed on property near the airport.
The project, commissioned by the Minneapolis Institute of Art as part of its 100th birthday celebration, was designed by earthworks artist Stan Herd
"The amazing thing about van Gogh's painting is there's not a single straight line in the whole canvas. Everything is organic and curved and flowing and it's like a pulse," Herd said in a project video
Herd started working on the design in the spring by arranging plants, soil and mulch to recreate the van Gogh art, which is part of the MIA permanent collection.
Van Gogh painted "Olive Trees" in 1889 while he was in southern France, according to the museum website
The landscape art will be on display through the fall.
