DES MOINES, Iowa – If you build it in butter, they will come. At least that’s what Iowa State Fair officials hope as they announced the sculpture to sit alongside the butter cow at this year’s event.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the movie Field of Dreams, the sculpture will feature elements of baseball and the rural Iowa landscape, officials said Wednesday.

The two sculptures will be on display in the John Deere Agriculture Building at a cool 40 degrees.

The fair runs from August 7 to 17.
