Crop art has been a Minnesota State Fair favorite attraction for decades. State Auditor Julie Blaha just took up the craft recently…

“I was talking to someone else who does crop art, she explained how she did it and I thought I can do that. It’s one of the places where a crafter like myself can actually display next to an actual artist and there’s nothing more Minnesota Get Together than letting regular people show alongside professionals.”

Blaha has two pieces on display this year–one of which is a blue ribbon winner. She says it took her about 70 hours to make. You can see all of this year’s crop art exhibits at the Agriculture Horticulture building.
