Maya Lin to give University Lecture today, March 8, at SUMarch 08, 2005Patrick Farrellpmfarrel@syr.edu
Maya Lin, architect and designer of Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will discuss her career in art and architecture as the next University Lectures speaker at Syracuse University. The lecture, scheduled for today, March 8, at 4:30 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel, is free and open to the public. Public parking will be available in the University’s paid lots.
Lin has won numerous awards for her work, and a documentary about her work, “Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision”, won an Academy Award in 1996. Her best-known creation, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, allows the names of those lost in combat to speak for themselves, connecting a tragedy that happened on foreign soil with the soil of America’s capital city.
