Visit the Figge and drop-in to a community workshop to construct corn stalk sculptures for MAiZE at the Figge! Figge staff will assist as you learn how to construct the corn stalks and become part of the collaboration.
Brooklyn-based artist Jean Shin (http://www.jeanshin.com) invites the community to harvest green plastic soda bottles and recycle them into a corn stalk maze installation at the Museum. The project aims to raise awareness about social and environmental issues including plastic waste, processed foods and the effects of industrial agriculture.
Join Jean Shin during a special Earth Day cleanup in downtown Davenport, and corn stalk construction event on April 22.
