GRAM docents will lead sketching exercises for 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.

The second Saturday of each month, join a docent-guided sketching tour of GRAM’s exhibitions. Sketching is a great way to look more deeply at the works of art on view as well as express your own creativity. These tours are free with admission and are open to individuals of all ages and levels of experience.  Please meet at 1pm in the main lobby.
