Film: Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision
An Oscar-winning film about the life of one of the most accomplished architects in America, man or woman. The fact that Maya Lin is a woman did cause some controversy with her design being chosen for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. That she was then only twenty, an undergraduate at Yale, and Asian American were also sore spots for many conservative voices, whose opposition we hear.
6–6:45 p.m.
Guided gallery tour of the exhibition "Carrie Mae Weems: Strategies of Engagement." No reservation is needed to join this free tour of our special winter exhibition–just drop in!
6–7:30 p.m.

6–8 p.m.
Women of Words: Slam Poetry Night
Inspired by the work of Carrie Mae Weems, three powerful women poets will weave words together that address identity, society, and art. Featuring Yolanda Wisher, Ashley Davis, and Raena Shirali.
