ATLANTIC, Iowa (KPTM)- An Iowa bean field is casting its vote in the upcoming election, well kind of. For one thing, it's giving one presidential candidate a lot of face time.
From the ground, it's just a little bit of dirt. But the second you take an aerial view of a soybean field off I-80 near Atlantic, Iowa, you'll see a different picture.
"It exposes Governor Romney to a vast number of people when you look at all the cars and truck that go by here on Interstate-80 every day," said Jim Pellet.
Jim and Nancy Pellet are some of the masterminds behind a large Governor Romney crop art off I-80.
"In the short period of time we were finishing it up here, we had people stopping on the interstate, taking pictures."
The crop artist is Shawn Stolworthy. Stolworthy uses a GPS on his tractor to lay out the designs for the artwork.
Jim said it took him two hours to finish, but it took them hours to find the right spot. "We were roaming the countryside," said Nancy.
"Checking out the view from the interstate, it all came together that this is the one that we settled on," said Jim.
The artwork covers 7 acres of farmland.
"It makes you think that you are making a difference," said Nancy.
A difference, Nancy said, in just a couple of inches of dirt.
Stolworthy has been traveling across the country doing crop art.
