Art: Gnarls Barkley depicted in CORN

by Josh Kimball

Local Minneapolis alt/mainstream rag Vita.mn has, in the grand tradition of the Minnesota State Fair, commissioned a seed art rendering of Gnarls Barkley, who is slated to play a show at the grandstand this Wednesday. Created by Elizabeth Schreiber (and captured via wilhelmina_wonka’s flickr photostream), the piece depicts Mr. Lo and Mr. Mouse in dyed and painted corn kernels, in poses reminiscent of Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.”

(Semi-related: I snapped some kernel art (including Elvis) at the State Fair last year.)
