This is a video from the Iowa State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition. You can see the camera scan by THIS piece at 0:10. I discovered this video today while searching for information. It was produced by Iowa Public Television and does a nice job of explaining the mission of the Iowa State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition.
