May 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Join us in observing Memorial Day with a screening of the 1994 film Maya Lin: A Strong, Clear Vision.This Academy Award-winning documentary tells the story of architect-sculptor Maya Lin, whose design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was selected from over a thousand submissions when she was a 21-year-old student at Yale University. The film explores the controversy that arose surrounding the design of the monument as well as its creator herself, a young, Chinese-American woman who stood her ground in the face of widespread criticism. Dedicated on Veteran’s Day in 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial has become one of the world’s most-visited memorials. 

Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision was written and directed by Frieda Lee Mock and produced by Frieda Lee Mock and Terry Sanders. The runtime of this film is 83 minutes.

All hybrid events will be livestreamed to our YouTube page and can be found under the “Live” tab. Recordings of select past events are available on YouTube as well. No registration is necessary in order to join in virtually.
