People's Art Project

A herd of 237 men, women and children braved temperatures that hovered around 10 degrees to form the shape of a giant bison at the seventh annual People's Art Project on Jan. 25, 2014. The event was held on the ice of Little Miller's Bay near Iowa Lakeside Laboratory during the 2014 Okoboji Winter Games to raise environmental awareness.
