Acclaimed artist, architect, and designer Maya Lin gave the Oregon Humanities Center’s 2014–15 O’Fallon Memorial Lecture in Art and American Culture on November 20, 2014 in the EMU Ballroom.
Maya Lin’s acclaimed work encompasses large-scale environmental installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works, and memorials. She virtually redefined the idea of monument with her very first work, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and since then has gone on to pursue a remarkable career in both art and architecture, while still being committed to the exploration of time, memory, history and language.
Lin’s lecture is free and open to the public. It is part of the OHC’s year-long theme series called “connection.” For more information go to ohc.uoregon.edu or contact email@example.com or (541) 346-3934.
