Goodland Landmark to Receive Restoration

GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) — Goodland's landmark reproduction of a famous Vincent van Gogh picture is getting a facelift. Canadian artist Cameron Cross is repairing the damage to the reproduction "Three Sunflowers in a Vase" caused by more than a decade of exposure to harsh Kansas weather. Cross installed the 24-foot-by-32-foot reproduction, on top of an 80-foot easel, near Interstate 70 in 2000. The Wichita Eagle reports that since then, the reproduction has become one of the most well-known pieces of public art in Kansas. People traveling nearby on the interstate often stop and take pictures. Cross' goal is to reproduce all seven of van Gogh's sunflower paintings in seven countries. So far, he's installed others in Canada and Australia. He says it will take at least two weeks to repair Goodland's painting.
