Wheatfield – A Confrontation: Battery Park Landfill, Downtown Manhattan

the artwork yielded 1,000 lbs. of wheat in the middle of New York City to comment on ‘human values and misplaced priorities’. It was created during a six-month period in the spring, summer, and fall of 1982 when artist Agnes Denes, with the support of the Public Art Fund, planted a field of golden wheat on two acres of rubble-strewn landfill near Wall Street and the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan (now the site of Battery Park City and the World Financial Center). The harvested grain then traveled to 28 cities worldwide in ‘The International Art Show for the End of World Hunger’ and was symbolically planted around the globe
