Bah, some people didn't even want her here. Myself among them. And if they are, can you blame them? Earl Butz's programs back in the 70s totally screwed the entire state over. Farmers that were once more or less self-sufficient (and therefore very stubborn in their political beliefs) are now basically forced to live on the government's money and Monsanto's whims. Look into history a little. It's sad.
Not to detract from the artwork, of course. It really is incredible.
