Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision

Exploratorium Film Program
Sunday, May 29
McBean Theater, 2pm

Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision, by Freida Lee Mock (1994, 98 mins.), gives us insight into the creative process of an artist in pursuit of a vision that conveys powerful memories to a nation so that it remembers collectively. This documentary presents a portrait of Chinese-American artist/architect/sculptor Maya Lin and highlights the sometime difficult but eventually rewarding path of designing and creating two eloquent and startling memorials. One is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. and the other is the Civil Rights Memorial in the South. Later projects by Lin are also explored. Shown in conjunction with Asian Pacific Heritage Month. Free with museum admission.
