VIDEO: Edgeley, N.D., man continues field art; has plans for one to Trump them all

It all started with a memorial tribute to Prince. Retired farmer Gene Hanson of Edgeley, N.D., got worldwide attention for his "field art." But as WDAY's Kevin Wallevand reports, Hanson's not done yet.

Gene Hanson, a retiree who lives in Edgeley, N.D., recently created a football field-sized replica of the unpronounceable "love symbol" used by Prince to honor the late pop star. Hanson said he taped a drawing of the symbol to the hood of his tractor and started plowing. "I couldn’t believe it myself that it turned out so well," he said Monday, May 2, 2996. He expects the symbol to be gone in a couple of days, plowed over as the farmers who rent his land plant their crop. Photo by Gene Hanson.
