Event description

Description

Artist and designer Maya Lin interprets the natural world through history, politics, and culture, creating a body of work that balances art and architecture. Lin’s installations, studio artworks, architecture, and memorials, such as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, become a part of the land, merging physical and psychological environments and presenting a new way of seeing the world around us. In 2009 she was awarded the National Medal of Arts — the nation’s highest honor for artistic excellence. Lin’s memorials address the critical social and historical issues of our time. From the Vietnam Memorial, which she designed as an undergraduate student at Yale, to The Civil Rights Memorial in Alabama and the Women’s Table at Yale, she makes our history part of the landscape. Lin’s art explores how we experience and relate to landscape, setting up a systematic ordering of the land that is tied to history, memory, time, and language. Her interest in landscape has led to works influenced by topographies and geographic phenomena.

The Oregon State University Provost’s Lecture Series is co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the OSU Foundation. Lin's visit is also supported by the College of Liberal Arts.
