CELEBRATING CHAMBANA & OUR INNOVATIONS

Champaign-Urbana is a hotbed for innovation, ranging from the invention of the modern web-browser to whipcream in a can. To celebrate some of these innovations, and to put CU on the map, we asked four local artists to come up with their spin on some reasons why we're proud to call #Chambana home.

Touts the invention of Super Sweetcorn from University of Illinois professor, John Laughnan, that brought this tasty summer favorite to dinner tables and grocery stores for all to enjoy.

ARTIST: Scobar

Super Sweet

We know you've used it. Our own slang for our twin cities, Champaign-Urbana.

ARTIST: Madelyn Witruk
