The commemorative artwork for the 2014 Minnesota State Fair was unveiled Wednesday.

Artist Emily Taylor of St. Paul designed the watercolor painting, which is a "playful representation of Minnesota's people, crops, animals and landmarks" illustrating the people who gather year after year for the Great Minnesota Get Together, according to a news release.

“This has been an amazing experience,” Taylor said in the release. “Having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people in an effort to help preserve the State Fair we know and love is a privilege. I can only hope that this painting will capture for the public what I feel is the essence of the Great Minnesota Get-Together’s community and spirit.”

This year's painting is the 11th in a series of annual artwork created for the fair.

Here's a sampling of art from previous years:

Taylor's art will be on display at the Fine Arts Center during the fair, which will run Aug. 21 through Sept. 1. Commemorative art posters and a limited number of signed prints art are available for purchase.
