Hastings artist’s work gaining national recognition
It’s been just over a year since Hastings resident and artist David Cook started planting flowers around the metro area. The flowers, brightly colored blooms that sometimes stand taller than an average adult, appear in all sorts of locations. They started in a junkyard and have migrated to beaches, hospitals, schools, roadside snowbanks, corporate headquarters, city halls and more.
Cook’s flowers exist for one reason: make people smile.
