Passengers passing through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas this week got a firsthand look at a crop circle-style artwork depicting presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.
Less than a week after announcing his 2020 presidential bid, O’Rourke, onetime Texas representative, was honored with the two-acre crop creation.
The artist, Stan Herd, used soil, grass and rock to dress his “Beto 2020” canvas on an East Austin ranch, Fox 7 reported. He has done similar land portraits of Democratic nominees in the past. Notable among them: one of Barack Obama in 2008.
Herd, a Kansas-based artist, has been creating earth art for more than 40 years.
