Every year an artist does sketches of a number of different themed scenes and they become art, made out of corn, on the walls of the palace in Mitchell, South Dakota. There are roughly 20 different types of corn grown to produce many different colors used in the art. Last year’s drought in south dakota put the annual project on hold until this year, when there were enough crops to complete the mural. It costs nearly $130, 000 to complete the murals annually. The artist plots out what colors of corn go where and a group of workmen, using special saws cut each cob in half, and affix it with a nail gun. This year’s theme was community service so the art depicted Firemen, Policemen, Teachers, Doctors and more. It is really amazing!
