Local artist Stan Herd—who was once called the “father of crop art” by Dan Rather on CBS Evening News—has spent more than 40 years creating large-scale images by planting, mowing and plowing pieces of land all over the world. His most recent project, “Young Woman of Brazil,” works with communities in Rio and Sao Paulo to plant gardens and create an atmosphere of collaboration. Herd says that he values Lawrence because it is a mecca for the arts and a great melting pot for a variety of artistic disciplines. “There is no place in the Midwest with this much energy, creative talent and cutting-edge excitement,” Herd says.
