Project Elote Blanco” traces an artist’s and anthropologists exploration in how maize-based food practice, taking place in the Southwest United States, demonstrates the persistence of a maize-based culture and history across geopolitical borders. The project began as a typographic mural on a storage trailer from which white maize is sold. Situated on a vacant lot in an Arizona city, the mural made an aesthetic contribution to the site and has contributed to a community exchange of place, pride and beauty.
