A recipient of the 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom, Maya Lin burst into the public eye at age 21 after winning a blind competition with her controversial Vietnam Veterans Memorial, now considered one of the most important public works of our time. She went on to create many remarkable large-scale site-specific installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works and memorials such as the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. She is currently at work on What is Missing? – her final memorial – a tribute to the planet and its vanished and endangered species. Insightful and eloquent, Lin will reflect upon a stunning body of work that explores how we relate and respond to art and the environment and presents new ways of looking at the world. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
