Stan Herd: Cairns on the Beach

Fall 2014 - May 2017

Inspired by the artist’s encounter with stacked rock sculptures in woods near Lake Perry, Cairns on the Beach highlights the natural beauty of our region’s geology and pays homage to the long history of built stone structures in Kansas. Herd, who is best known for his work as a crop artist—arranging rocks, dirt and plants into compositions best seen from above—acted as lead artist on this collaboratively designed project. Throughout the fall 2014 semester, Herd will work with students from the K-State departments of Art and Landscape Architecture and Regional and Community Planning to design and install this temporary outdoor installation.
