About Malcolm Cochran
Artist and educator Malcolm Cochran designed Field of Corn (with Osage Orange Trees) for the Dublin Arts Council's Art in Public Places program.

He took his inspiration for the installation from the history of the land upon which it would stand. Former cornfields owned by Sam Frantz had become an office park with a green space. The 109 cast concrete, six foot tall ears of corn stand as tribute to the farming history of Dublin, and to Sam Frantz in particular, who was a pioneer in hybridizing corn.
Cochran's other works
Other local large art pieces created by Mr. Cochran include "Big Pig Bank", located in the Cleveland Public Library and the "Goodale Park Fountain in Columbus.

Cochran's art reaches past Ohio, however. New York is home to "Scrapyard Temple to Socrates" as well as "Private Passage", which was inspired by a stateroom on the Queen Mary ocean liner.
Mr. Cochran was awarded the International Sculpture Center's Outstanding Educator Award for 2017.
