Spring Class Registration begins Monday, March 1

MAYA LIN – What is Missing?

Over the course of nearly four decades, Maya Lin has produced a diverse range of artworks, from studio sculptures and site-specific installations to public monuments and land art. Many of these works explore the theme of memory while showcasing Lin’s deep commitment and love for the natural environment. These overarching interests converge in Lin’s interactive project What is Missing? 

Art historian Jessamine Batario invites you to two spring Zoom events featuring Maya Lin and the What is Missing? project.

The Illuminator is your UMASC newsletter, and we count on you to submit articles, stories, poems, photos, or even original works of art. Since the Illuminator is only eight pages long, submissions between 250 and 750 words work best. If possible, include original photos that illustrate your work and a photo of yourself.

If you have any questions about the newsletter, or would like to submit an item for publication, please contact the newsletter editor, Ann Sullivan, at office@umasc.org

The next deadline is May 24.
