Corn on the Curb

Downtown Bloomington, Illinois

The following photos were taken in downtown Bloomington in June, 2001. The fiberglass forms were painted by various area artists. The vision was to have a tourism/artistic expression something along the lines of the Chicago cows, which were making news worldwide in 2000. But in Central Illinois, what better symbol than corn to help the city celebrate its 150th birthday, which happened in 2000. The corn forms are presently in other locations, some of which can be seen by Famous Dave’s in Bloomington.
