Commemorative Painting Unveiled for WDE's 50th Anniversary
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/20/2016

Prints of a special painting by artist Larry Schultz that captures all the facets of World Dairy Expo will soon be made available to the public. The commemorative art piece was unveiled during WDE's summer picnic last week. It was commissioned as a way to celebrate the show's 50th anniversary later this year.

Schultz, who owns Sunny Beach Farm Studio, says he wanted to encompass an image that represented the five-decade history of World Dairy Expo while also showcasing iconic moments, animals and people.

"We really wanted to include as many elements of Expo as possible," Schultz said. "The cows, the famous globe and the Coliseum itself are almost a lifelong thing. We wanted to also incorporate commercial elements. We wanted to show the whole entire experience."

Prints can be ordered from the 50th Anniversary page on the World Dairy Expo website at Paper prints are available in three sizes, including 8"x10", 16"x20" and 18"x24". Additionally, a canvas wrap is available in 16"x11".

This year's World Dairy Expo will be held October 4-8 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.
