((KAREN HARVEY/HOLLINS HEAD COACH: IT'S IMPORTANT TO HOLLINS TO GET ALL THE KIDS OUT HERE BECAUSE IT HELPS THEM TO COME ON CAMPUS AND LEARN MORE ABOUT HOLLINS. JUST GETTING THE INNER CITY KIDS HELPS TO REACH OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY AND GET KIDS THAT WE DON'T NORMALLY GET TO COME OUT TO OUR CAMP.)) ((CANDACE DOWELL/10 YEAR OLD CAMPER:IT'S BEEN A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR ME BECAUSE I'VE LEARNED A WHOLE LOT AT THIS CAMP AND IT WILL HELP ME IN MY AAU GAMES AND REC GAMES WHEN I GET OLDER.))

It's a sculpture of John Wayne... made out of BUTTER.
Sculptor Norma Duffy Lyon... has been creating butter sculptures at the Iowa state fair since 1959.
She works in 38 to 40 degree temperatures- might be nice considering how hot it's been in the midwest these days.
The famous butter cow.. along with her newest creation at this years Iowa State Fair.
