Renowned artist and designer, Maya Lin will present her lecture “At the Intersection of Art and Architecture" as part of the 2019 Tanner Lectures on Human Values. 

Lin’s installations, studio artworks, architecture and memorials, such as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, become a part of the land, merging physical and psychological environments, presenting a new way of seeing the world. In 2009 she was awarded the National Medal of Arts — the nation’s highest honor for artistic excellence. Lin was awarded in 2016 with the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to those who have made "an especially meritorious contribution to the United States," for her widely acclaimed memorials.

In her presentation, “At the Intersection of Art and Architecture,” Lin will discuss her work and how her pursuit of both art and architecture has impacted her design process. A daughter of immigrants, Lin has forged a rare path that includes seminal art, architectural works as well as groundbreaking memorials.
