Lowell Davis and Red Oak II

If you ever find yourself traveling on Route 66 near Joplin Mo. make sure to check out Red Oak 2 The force behind this historical part of the Midwest is Lowell Davis, a very talented artist who built this small town in a cornfield. Here is Lowell and Miss Agnes on his front porch as we were on our way to a different location while shooting the 4 State Trucks 2012 Calendar

and here are some of the building Lowell has moved into this neighborhood over the years.

Here is a great quote of the artist explaining his take on art:

“I don’t believe that an artist should be restricted to use only paint or clay. It can be anything including junk, wood, even an old building. To me, Red Oak II is a combination of a painting and a sculpture, and it is just made from things that someone else threw away.”

Please, you owe it to yourself to check out this small town and stop by Lowell’s house in the middle of it all and say hi. He is super creative and fun to talk to and loves Aussies. He has met people from all over the world who make the trek across the country on this very famous road.
