Baby and Me Tour: Maya Lin
May 21, 2019, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
GRAM docents will guide participants through an exhibition featuring the work of renowned artist, architect, and designer Maya Lin. Organized by GRAM in collaboration with Lin’s studio, the exhibition focuses on large-scale sculpture that demonstrates Lin’s fascination with water as a subject. Created in materials such as silver, carved and polished marble, steel, and building materials, Lin’s work is conceived through the meticulous use of charting, mapping, and scientific research in determining each sculpture’s ultimate design, layout, and structure. The focus on water and the environment is relevant now more than ever, and Lin’s compelling artworks will help raise environmental awareness and challenge visitors to ponder humanity’s relationship with the natural world.
Expect a special kind of outing where no one minds if baby lends their opinion with a coo or a cry! Strollers permitted; carrying or babywearing encouraged! This tour is free; visitors enjoy free admission every Tuesday at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
