The idea for Mike’s Maze was born at a Christmas party almost twenty years ago when two friends, farmer Mike Wissemann and artist Will Sillin, decided to combine talents and create corn art.
Will designed the inaugural maze and fashioned it using a rented ATV and a GPS. After the first year was a success and they decided to make each maze bigger and better than the last. Will has since created a precise strategy to perfect his corn art by creating a grid system and removing individual stalks of corn for greater detail and precision.
After a decade and a half of making his world famous art in corn at Mike’s Maze, and designing creative games to pair with them, Will has stepped down as our Resident Corn Artist in order to spend more time exploring his other areas of artistic interest.
After many long conversations with Will about technique and style, logistics and creativity, Mike’s son David Wissemann and his wife, Jess Marsh Wissemann will design their first maze in 2015.
Mike’s Maze is more than just a corn maze–each year it is an original masterpiece of corn art on earth! Really, it’s true. Just take a look at our Past Mazes and be amazed!
