“Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision”
The Harold B. Lee Library’s Art and Architecture Film Series “Four Contemporary Architects” will feature the Academy Award-winning film “Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision” Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 4 p.m. in the Lee Library auditorium at Brigham Young University.
All are invited to attend, and admission is free.
The 98-minute documentary highlights artist, architect and sculptor Maya Lin, a daughter of Chinese immigrants who, at age 21, designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Critic Gene Siskel called Maya Lin a role model and couldn’t wait to show the film to his daughters after he had seen it.
The New York Post called it “An incredibly moving, must-see film,” and the Boston Globe hailed it as the finest film about a contemporary artist.
The film also shows Lin’s other notable achievements, including the Civil Rights Memorial, the Yale Women’s Table and the Juniata Peace Chapel.
