New Exhibit by Sculpture Artist Maya Lin is Now on Display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco

Maya Lin, best-known for her modern, memory gripping design of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., has shifted her subject matter to our planet, focusing in recent years “on a reconsideration of landscape in a time of ecological tension and change“. Currently, Maya Lin’s work is presented by PG&E at the de Young ~ via Heart of Green’s Cool Green Events:

“Systematic Landscapes is a major exhibition of new sculptures, drawings, and installations by renowned artist Maya Lin…this new body of work engages the issue of our fragile connection to the environment in timely and poetic ways.”

Simultaneously, Systematic Landscapes previews Maya Lin’s public art installation Where the Land Meets the Sea, a tubular wire sculpture commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission for Golden Gate Park’s California Academy of Sciences.

Walking around the gallery earlier today I was pleased to discover that in addition to the exhibition, Lin has created thirty limited edition environmental sculptures for the de Young galleries. While they are pricey, luckily if you are a member, you may take an extra twenty percent off next weekend at their members only sale from October 31st through November 1st. Only one has sold since the show opened this weekend, so now is your chance if you’ve dreamed of becoming an art collector.
