Mr. Peanut by Dan Budde
Clear

Driving into Clinton, Iowa across the Mississippi River heading west the Mr. Peanut Planters elevator was the landmark for years. Not actually a peanut storage elevator but one for grain.
The Planters logo was painted on after the company bought the structure from the Pillsbury Company. You can see the Pillsbury logo appearing as the Planters logo peels off. In the 80s some daring graffiti artist painted a mustache and goatee on the peanut man and through the years the logos and graffiti have faded and peeled into a interesting subject for a painting. In 2007 the elevator was demolished
