Alberto Seveso was born in Milan, grew up in Sardinia, but is currently living and working in Bristol (UK) as a freelancer. His art process involves combining metallic powders, inks, and varnishes, and pouring this mixture into a vessel of water to create an explosion of color. Seveso uses high-speed photography to capture the beautiful aftermath, each photograph different from the next. A Due Colori and Black Trap in Munich are enlarged prints that focus on movement – a focus that inspired their placement in the elevators at The Current Iowa.

These ears of corn are made of glass & bronze, and come to us from a Wisconsin artist and farmer named Michael Meilahn.

Michael Meilahn spent a year in the Peace Corp in Bolivia, earning a Masters in Art. After his studies, he returned home to farm and to build a glass/art studio. In time, the art imagery became a story about farming and farming demanded a more creative venue. His work has evolved into conceptual mixed media and installation configurations centered on the pop culture icon of an ear of corn representing eons of time, evolution, selective breeding, and survival of the fittest. Collections include Figge Art Museum, Corning Museum of Glass and Museum of Art and Design.

Fun Fact: In the days of the early settlers to North America, corn was so valuable that it was used as money and traded for other products such as meat and furs.
