Regional Relationships 02Claire Pentecost, Greetings From The Cornbelts

Regional Relationships is pleased to present "Greetings from the Cornbelts" a postcard project by artist and scholar Claire Pentecost.

While most of the corn surrounding Pentecost's home town of Chicago has been scientifically engineered for local products like ethanol, corn syrup and animal feed, it leaves footprints far beyond the US Midwest. Crossing into territories not immediately visible from the cornfields of Illinois or Iowa, its influence can be found in the rural communities of Mexico where maize has been cultivated for countless generations.

Contents of mailing:

RR02 consists of a series of five postcards documenting Pentecost's research and travels in Mexico, along with a poster and archival envelope.
