About

This Figge visitor favorite features a “corn field” installation of oversize blown glass ears of corn carefully suspended from the museum's ceiling with rope. The exhibition explores the fragility of glass, the story of corn, and contemporary issues in farming, including genetic modification. The bright and cheerfully colored art tells a farming story, both fruitful and dangerous, and underscores the significance of human manipulation in modern farming.

Corn Zone was purchased in honor of the late Tom Gildehaus, museum trustee, board president and museum supporter.
