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

We stopped to let the kids air out. Fine for a 5 minute visit but nothing more. Super easy access off and back to the highway.

It's a great bit of art -- meta-art, even -- and it makes me want to take photos with people in the foreground. And if you're in the area anyway, it doesn't hurt to drive by. I just have a hard time giving a single piece of municipal art a high rating as an "attraction." There IS a nice museum... More

Parts of I-70 are just plain boring. Need a break...check out Goodland. Besides tornadoes...the giant Van Gogh is probably the coolest thing to photograph in Kansas. And it is free! Plus there is a Pizza Hut nearby.
