Not A Cornfield

From May 9, 2009 through July 12, 2009 in Entrance Gallery


A photography and video installation capturing the transformation of a 32-acre brownfield in the historic center of Los Angeles into a cornfield for one agricultural cycle between May 2005 and May 2006. This project — which involved 1,500 truckloads of clean dirt and 1 million corn seeds — was created by artist Lauren Bon to bring forth questions surrounding the nature of urban public spaces and convey redemption and hope. The artwork was a visually stunning environmental action and a relational initiative that generated a social and cultural hub. It was also an experiment in project-based philanthropy that irrigated the future site of a new state park. The exhibition is a product of the Metabolic Studio, a direct charitable activity of the Annenberg Foundation.
