Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision Discussion
The Spiritual Growth Forum for Sunday, February 9, 2020
Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision
Discussion led by Christine Sellin, art professor from California Lutheran University
Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision won the 1994 Academy Award for Best
Documentary Feature. The film tracks this young, American-Japanese
architecture student who created the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., arguably the most successful and moving civic monument worldwide.
Singlehandedly, Ms. Lin revolutionized the idea of what public monuments
and civic art can and should be. She began her work in the late 1960s. To create the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., she faced significant
challenges and difficulties because her ideas conflicted with convention
and ideas about heroism. Maya Lin is based in southern California and is
very successful today. She continues to work on major projects.
SPIRITUAL GROWTH FORUM February 9, 2020 · 9:30 AM · Fireside Room
During our 9:30 educational hour on Sunday mornings our Spiritual Growth ministry offers a weekly discussion forum where all are welcome to join in a stimulating conversation. Small groups gather during this time for Bible study, a guest speaker lecture, or to dive into a book that explores faith. Topics at the forum cover a wide variety of issues and ideas that are practical to modern life for those curious about religion, science, and history.
If you would like to join us, please come to the Fellowship Hall on our campus. Don’t be afraid if the room looks crowded – we will happily pull up a chair for you at this popular, ongoing event, where refreshments are provided.
Whether you are a seasoned person of faith or just wish to live a meaningful life, being thoughtful of serving others, we hope to have you join us soon.
