Maya Lin March 8, 2005

Maya Lin has won international acclaim for her site-specific art and architecture projects. Since her design for the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., she has gone on to pursue not one but two careers, creating both art and architecture projects that “propose ways of thinking and imagining that resist categories, genres, and borders,” writes art critic Michael Brenson. Her work has won numerous awards, and a documentary about her work, Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision, won an Academy Award in 1996. Represented by Gagosian Gallery in New York, her artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States.
