Help create a new crop artwork on the Tanderup farm!

Volunteers needed: May 17-21

Bold Nebraska has the chance to team up again with Nebraska farmer and Pipeline Fighter Art Tanderup, and artist John Quigley to create a gigantic new #NoKXL crop artwork in Art’s cornfield in Neligh, Nebraska.

We want to create new crop art from May 17-21st — but we can’t do it unless we’re able to recruit ten volunteers each day during the art installation, to help measure, lay the outline and create the new design… which we’re keeping under wraps for now.

The first #NoKXL crop artwork (pictured above) — the world’s largest-ever, covering an 80-acre field — was created in April 2014 with a “Heartland #NoKXL” message to then-President Obama featuring an icon representing the Cowboy Indian Alliance, which has now been fighting this pipeline for nine-plus years.

A year later in May 2015, a massive second #NoKXL crop artwork was created by Quigley and Tanderup in the cornfield, again targeting Pres. Obama with a message to protect his climate legacy by rejecting the KXL pipeline — which he did!

Farmers, ranchers, native allies and advocates hope this action helps seal Pres. Obama’s rejection of the tarsands pipeline.

After President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline in November 2015, Art and John collaborated again with volunteers in 2016 to create a third crop artwork, calling for a transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.
