Stan Herd is an American crop artist and painter who creates images, or earthworks, on large areas of land, especially in Kansas. His work is sometimes called living sculpture. He plots his designs and then executes them by planting, mowing, and sometimes burning, or plowing the land. Two of Herd's first Kansas installations were the 160-acre portraits of Kiowa War Chief Satanta and Will Rogers. These artworks can be seen in Herd's 1994 book on crop art. He is associated with the Prairie Renaissance Movement. Herd's website includes photos of his work and a list of some of the media coverage of his various projects, including an article in Smithsonian magazine and National Geographic's World magazine. Herd made several trips to Havana to create Rosa Blanca in 2001, an image of a white rose in honor of the 19th-century Cuban poet Jose Marti. Herd's work has been seen on CBS Sunday Morning; Fox Television's Breakfast Time; Dateline NBC; CNN News; ABC's Good Morning America; and National Public Radio's All Things Considered.
