Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision

Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision

Maya Lin is an amazing artist. I learned and discussed about her work briefly in my introduction to art course. I did not know she was Chinese and was a native-born in the United States. Also, I did not know that she more than design such as architecture. I especially liked her work for the Civil Rights monument. It was inspirational specifically due to her creative usage of Martin Luther Kings quote as an inspiration for the monument. The chronological timeline and water fountain made it much more personable and meaningful than having a simple statue of a person to represent the civil rights movement.

  1. I also really liked her civil rights monument! I liked how you said that the timeline and the water fountain held more meaning than just a statue of a person. I agree with this too
