This is just always a treat to see. You can drive over and view the painting from a pull off that has handy parking. The stretch from Denver to eastern Kansas on I70 can become tedious. What a good idea this little town has. I always enjoy going over and seeing it!

WOW! That's a big painting! If you are staying in Goodland, KS (or just driving through on I-70 and need a break) stop by and see the Giant van Gogh Painting. We got a kick out of it - it was more impressive than I expected it to be :-)

While trying to get to main street we stumbled on this giant painting in Goodland, Kansas that pretty much stops you in your tracks. In the middle of nowhere is this giant painting high in the air. A sight to see if in western Kansas on I-70.

Just an odd road side stop, just off of I-70. Small town of Goodland, KS is known for this easel and a replica of Van Gogh's sunflowers painting (with their own touch). There is a small parking lot, a brief history of how the easel came about, and maintained. The walkway is a wobbly brick sidewalk or grass and bricks... More

Pretty much just what you expect. I'm glad we drove out to see it. It was a little hard to find; I finally just asked a woman getting out of her car where it was.

If you like Van Gogh, you'd like this enormous painting in Goodland, KS. Worth taking more than a picture or two, from up close, to near the road. This is the ultimate honor a painter can have. Too bad there's not enough propaganda for people to go more often. Other than this huge Big Easel, not a whole lot more... More

Very easy to get to from I-70 going east or west. This is one BIG painting!! It takes just a few minutes to get to and it's quite the site. It was pouring, I mean pouring down rain the day I was there, but, it is so large that I was able to take quite a few decent pictures from... More

Situated on a main road, easy to find. We came upon it by happenstance. It is a pretty diversion, but wouldn't go out of my way. Looks just like the photos.

My niece and I are both Van Gogh fans so this was a great little diversion from the monotony of the Kansas interstate. It's enormous and is just off the highway so it doesn't take much time. We enjoyed it.

If you plan to drive I-70 East or West plan to exit at #17 or #19 and take a picture of "3 Sunflowers in a Vase" by Van Gogh and reproduced here by Canadian artist Cameron Cross. It is worth the short drive out of the way off the Interstate. If you stay at the Goodland, KS KOA you can... More
