'Not a Cornfield' — 'A living sculpture in the form of a field of corn'

20051017140910562

Artist Lauren Bon was given $3 million by the Annenberg Foundation to transform 28 acres in the center of Los Angeles, just off the Pasadena Freeway, into a cornfield.

She did just that.

As of today the corn is over 12 feet tall in some areas and producing tassels and ears.

Hand harvesting began Sunday and will continue through December 4, with about two million ears of corn to be pulled down.
