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.
