Mike Brown of the popular website, &ldquo;Brainzooming,&rdquo; wrote about seeing one of the world&rsquo;s largest Van Gogh Sunflowers paintings in Goodland. He referred to it as a &ldquo;poster child for extreme creativity,&rdquo; and made a video during his visit.Brainzooming is all about innovation, so it&rsquo;s no wonder he was drawn to the 24 by 32 foot reproduction of Van Gogh&rsquo;s classic that stands on an 80-foot tall easel. Canadian artist Cameron Cross chose Goodland for his &ldquo;Big Easel Project,&rdquo; because it is the &ldquo;Sunflower Capital of the Sunflower State.&rdquo; It&rsquo;s the only one of the giant paintings in the U.S. The other six are in Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, Japan and South Africa &ndash; all locations that have something to do with sunflowers, Van Gogh, or both.
