The Iowa State Fair Panorama was shot on August 12th and 13th, 2016. Sections of the photograph will be posted here as editing progresses throughout the year. The final 150 foot-long photograph will be on view at the Cultural Center during the fair in 2017.
Below are the first five sections of the panorama (each about 15 feet long). To view: click the image, enlarge to 100%, and use your browser or arrows to scroll. Chronologically, the panorama starts at the right.
Support provided by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area.
