Son Little

What is the new magic of music? If you trace the path of a plan back to its beginnings, what do you find? Is it a tree, growing from seed with deep roots planted in fertile soil, branches arcing out in all directions? Or a spark in the dark, an electrical charge? Is it a waterway, with swirling currents raging to create a river? Or is it a snowflake, falling from on high and dropping down to earth with a singular splash?

The Obert C. and Grace A. Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah presents the 2019 Tanner Lecture on Human Values given by artist and designer Maya Lin Wednesday, November 20, 7 pm at Kingsbury Hall. Lin interprets the natural world through history, politics, and culture, creating a body of work that balances art and architecture. 

Lin’s installations, studio artworks, architecture, and memorials, such as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, become a part of the land, merging physical and psychological environments and presenting a new way of seeing the world. In 2009 she was awarded the National Medal of Arts —the nation’s highest honor for artistic excellence. Lin was again awarded in 2016 with the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to those who have made "an especially meritorious contribution to the United States," for her widely acclaimed memorials.

Tickets are required to the free lecture and will be available on Monday, October 21 at 10 am at tickets.utah.edu.
