Maya Lin's Final Public Memorial at The Cal Academy

Twenty-eight years ago, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial won artist Maya Lin instant fame at the tender age of 21 for her brilliantly unconventional approach to uniting a divided nation with a simple slab of black granite. This Thursday, the renowned sculptor and landscape architect will debut her last public memorial at the California Academy of Sciences right here in San Francisco. The permanent site-specific sound and media installation entitled “What Is Missing?” is the first of a multi-sited, multimedia art project committed to raising awareness about the global crisis surrounding biodiversity and habitat loss.
