Maya Lin : A Strong Clear Vision( Visual )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 1,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Academy Award winner reveals the contentious origins of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and tells the inspiring story of its creator, a 21-year-old Yale architecture student. Beating out some of the most prestigious architecture films from around the world, Lin's plan was selected from over 1,000 different designs, a giant victory for such a young and unknown artist. But little did Maya Lin know that her battle was just beginning. In Washington to defend her design, Lin came up against a mighty opposition, challenging indignant veterans and a hostile Congress to ultimately prevail with her emotional 'Wall.' And what began as one of the country's most bitterly disputed public monuments became one of the world's inspirational and frequently visited memorials. In this riveting and dramatic portrait, renowned filmmaker Freida Lee Mock combines interviews and archival footage to chronicle Lin's story -- from its origins, dominated by her David vs. Goliath battle over the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to a career designing other memorials, always with an innate talent, and resolute courage." -- Back of container

4 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the remarkable history of Chinese Americans, from the first wave of immigration in the 1850s to the present day. Rather than finding the "Gold Mountain" they expected in California, early arrivals faced hardship and hard work, battled poverty and prejudice, and experienced the loneliness of a people caught between two worlds. Through personal narratives and interviews with historians, Moyers recounts the remarkable transformation of a bachelor society confined to America's Chinatowns into the new "model minority" and beyond to an integral part of the American mainstream and a vital part of the nation's future

Boundaries by Maya Ying Lin( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renowned artist and architect Maya Lin's visual and verbal sketchbook-a unique view into her artwork and philosophy. Walking through this parklike area, the memorial appears as a rift in the earth-a long, polished black stone wall, emerging from and receding into the earth. Approaching the memorial, the ground slopes gently downward, and the low walls emerging on either side, growing out of the earth, extend and converge at a point below and ahead. Walking into the grassy site contained by the walls of this memorial, we can barely make out the carved names upon the memorial's walls. These names, seemingly infinite in number, convey the sense of overwhelming numbers, while unifying these individuals into a whole ... So begins the competition entry submitted in 1981 by a Yale undergraduate for the design of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.-subsequently called "as moving and awesome and popular a piece of memorial architecture as exists anywhere in the world." Its creator, Maya Lin, has been nothing less than world famous ever since. From the explicitly political to the un-ashamedly literary to the completely abstract, her simple and powerful sculpture-the Rockefeller Foundation sculpture, the Southern Poverty Law Center Civil Rights Memorial, the Yale Women's Table, Wave Field-her architecture, including The Museum for African Art and the Norton residence, and her protean design talents have defined her as one of the most gifted creative geniuses of the age. Boundaries is her first book: an eloquent visual/verbal sketchbook produced with the same inspiration and attention to detail as any of her other artworks. Like her environmental sculptures, it is a site, but one which exists at a remove so that it may comment on the personal and artistic elements that make up those works. In it, sketches, photographs, workbook entries, and original designs are held together by a deeply personal text. Boundaries is a powerful literary and visual statement by "a leading public artist" (Holland Carter). It is itself a unique work of art
