Amazing Maize: The Science, History, and Culture of Corn

Corn, as many Hoosiers know, is essential to the history of people’s relationship with agriculture. After years of preparation, the Indiana State Museum will debut an exhibit called Amazing Maize: The Science, History, and Culture of Corn this Sept. 24, 2011. The exhibit will last until Jan. 20, 2013 and hopes to enlighten museum goers about the “10,000-year global journey” of the most productive domesticated crop of all time.

Visitors should expect to better understand what makes corn such a fascinating plant, and why it is so significant culturally, historically, and economically. Because corn is such a productive and versatile crop, the exhibit is able to provide illumination on a wide variety of issues and topics; in other words, visitors will be “a-maized.”

The exhibit is supported by Dow AgroSciences, Ford Motor Company, and Case IH.
