Downtown Museum Of Glass Hosts Acclaimed Artist, Architect Maya Lin

Artist and architect Maya Lin for a two-day Visiting Artist residency in the Hot Shop on March 16 and 17, 2007. During her residency, Lin will direct with the Hot Shop Team as they experiment with creating hot-sculpted clear glass “water drop” forms.

These forms will be incorporated into an installation that will be included in the Museum’s Fifth Anniversary exhibition, Mining Glass, which opens on June 16, 2007.

In her career, Lin has created a remarkable body of work that includes large-scale, site-specific installations and intimate studio works. She looks at the landscape through a 21st century lens, often using technology to re-imagine and rethink what the land is and our relationship to it. A committed environmentalist, her work often asks the viewer to take a closer look at the natural world. “I create places in which to think, without trying to dictate what to think. A strong respect and love for the land exists throughout my work.”

Lin first came to prominence 25 years ago when, as a 21-year-old Yale undergraduate, she designed the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial. In 2000, Lin was asked to participate in the Confluence Project, a project commemorating the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Lin is constructing works, including both building and landscape designs as well as integrated artwork, which will be located at key confluences of the Columbia River and its tributaries in Washington and Oregon. Her artwork has been shown in solo museum exhibitions in the United States, Italy, Denmark, and Sweden.
