Cows in the Corn, Route 66 sculpture, Lincoln, IL.

More than a few sites, particularly the Illinois centric ones pointed to this piece of art as Iconic to route 66… no idea why. Seriously, don’t bother… it doesn’t even show up on google maps.

A sculpture is a 3-D object and should exist in 3D… this one is fairly 2D and photos of it tell you all you’re going to need to know… nothing to be gained by seeing it in person. (Seriously, paintings in person never look like they do in photos… this sucker does)

A recent attraction to Route 66 (built in 2001 it was only purchased by Logan county and moved to it’s currently location in 2007), it was built out of oak and steel by David Bentley. According to one site, the Reader’s digest organization has also awarded it the title of America’s #1 roadside attraction… although I got to wonder about that title
