Corn Maze, District Drive Entrance
Maize (Zea mays) is one of the earliest cultivated grains in the Western Hemisphere. Join North Carolina State University ethnobotanist Jillian De Gezelle at the corn maze in the Museum Park for a conversation about identity and community and the food on our tables. Ends at 7 pm.
From Blue Ridge Road, enter the Museum campus at District Drive. Then turn right into the gravel parking area.
Follow signs to the event, which will be held near the smokestack and large whirligig. Refer to this map for details.
This talk is part of NCSU’s multisite exhibition Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology: Shaping Our Genetic Futures.
American Sign Language interpretation is provided for this event.
