Last Monday we were in Columbus, Ohio visiting Jason Laskodi, our Laughing Squid Web Hosting support ninja. While driving through Dublin on our way back from lunch, we stopped by the site specific sculptural installation of 109 giant concrete ears of corn located in Sam and Eulalia Frantz Park. “Field of Corn (with Osage Orange Trees)” was created by Malcolm Cochran 1994 with funding from the Dublin Arts Council and is a tribute to Sam Frantz, who developed hybrid corn in the area from the 30’s through the 60’s. The installation honors the area’s agricultural past and is also reminiscent of America’s great roadside attractions.
