Behind the Scenes at George Eastman House
Check out these photos of our latest gallery installation!
Not a Cornfield is a photography and video installation that captures 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 to convey redemption and hope.
This interactive exhibition will be on view at George Eastman House from Saturday, May 9 through Sunday, July 12, 2009.
We will continue to post photos of the Not a Cornfield installation and exhibition throughout its run at George Eastman House.
