Artist-in-Residence Lecture: Maya Lin

Tuesday, April 19, 2016,

Lorimer Chapel

Through her art and architecture, Maya Lin explores landscape as a reflection of time, history, and memory. In this lecture organized in conjunction with Colby College’s 2015–16 humanities theme, Human/Nature, Lin will speak about her work and What Is Missing?, her ongoing project that proposes we look at a memorial not as a singular static object, but as a work that can exist in multiple forms and at multiple sites simultaneously.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Tickets for the lecture are SOLD OUT at the Museum. The lecture will be simulcast in Colby’s Diamond Ostrove Auditorium.

The Miles and Katharine Culberston Prentice Distinguished Lecture, part of Colby’s inaugural Artist-in-Residence Series is cosponsored by the Colby Museum, Center for the Arts and Humanities, Art Department, Environmental Studies Program, and the Office of the President with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
