New Maya Lin Art Installments Track The Route Of Lewis And Clark

Ross Reynolds interviews artist Maya Lin, designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, about the Confluence Project.

Since 2001 Lin has been working on six interpretive art works that track the Lewis and Clark expedition route along the Columbia River. She weaves together several things to create the projects: the Lewis and Clark Journals about their pioneering trip across country, the history of the Columbia River’s geology, native American accounts and a contemporary environmental perspective.
