BPL Lowell Lecture Series :: Maya Lin Lecture
Thursday January 24, 2013 at 6 pm
Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, Central Location

Maya Lin has maintained a careful balance between art and architecture throughout her career, having virtually redefined the idea of the monument with her highly acclaimed Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in 1982.

She has since gone on to successfully pursue the creation of a remarkable body of work that encompasses large-scale site-specific installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works, and memorials. Lin graduated from Yale University receiving a BA in 1981 and an MA in 1986, maintaining a professional studio in New York City since then.

She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Presidential Design Award, the Mayor’s Award for Arts and Culture, an AIA Honor Award, and the Finn Juhl Prize.

The 2012-2013 Lowell Lecture Series: Common Ground celebrates public spaces and their creators, chroniclers, and communities of users. This series is part of the library's Building Boston initiative.
