Field of Corn

This field of inedible, human-sized corn was ironically intended to remind passersby of Ohio's diminishing agricultural commodity. Once a corn field, this flat piece of land is now a publicly funded work of art consisting of 109 concrete ears of shucked corn. Each human-sized ear weighs roughly 1,500 pounds. They field pays homage to Sam Frantz who invented hybrid corn varieties. (Photo by Gary Arman)

So it’s a field of concrete corn created to both honor the man who claimed to invent the idea of hybrid corn. A practice long done by Nature Americans and remind people of the loss of agriculture areas? Ironically fun to see. Ironic.
