DecolonizeLA: The Crop Project
May 11, 2016 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Crop Project’s exhibition includes an installation of the cornfield’s digging process and found objects from underground. Join members of The Crop Project on May 11, 7:30-9:30 p.m for some corn snacks and drinks!
The Crop Project is a public art piece that invites people to grow corn in USC Roski School of Art and Design from April- July 2016. The project includes a 15-square-foot corn field, educational corn growing workshop, corn cooking lessons and a group harvest event in June when corn fully matures. Through a group effort of cultivating a staple food, corn, and sharing the unprocessed product in a city that consumes but rarely grows corn, we can be closer to nature, and closer to each other. This event is part of the DecolonizeLA series, and was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
