Malcolm Cochran's sculpture consists of 109 concrete ears of corn,
each approximately six foot high, into the ground in even rows.
Cochran finished the piece by creating a row of text panels that
explain the history of corn production and set them among Osage
orange trees.

Parking is on the side of the road that leads to a company building.
Once you have found the sculpture go to the panel that discusses the
Osage orange trees, from here look at the tree at 295 degrees. The
tree's landmark number is 4334, in the fork of the tree trunks sits
the letterbox.
