“Is this heaven? No it’s Iowa.” So goes the iconic line from the movie Field of Dreams. You can visit heaven in Iowa at the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville and while you’re in town, head downtown to see a newer attraction: the Field of Dreams Ghost Players Mural.
The Ghost Players mural depicts a scene from the film in which famous dead baseball players emerge from the corn fields. This Field of Dreams mural was was created by Beau Thomas of Trackside Design LLC in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The artwork was commissioned in July 2020 and was supposed to coincide with a “Beyond the Game” festival in conjunction with a Major League Baseball game played at Field of Dreams. The event was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19, but the mural (and an “If You Build It Exhibit” in the same building) still went ahead.
Written on top of the mural is that famous film line: “Is this heaven? No it’s Iowa.” Which makes the perfect selfie to commemorate your Iowa road trip.
