Maya Lin BA ’81, M.Arch ’86 Commissioned to Create Sculpture for Obama Presidential Center

Recently, Former President Barack Obama announced that the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago’s Water Garden will be anchored around a commissioned art installation from Maya Lin BA ’81, M.Arch ’86.

According to the Pace Gallery, “Lin’s work, titled Seeing Through the Universe, will feature an upright “oculus” piece that mists and a flat “pebble” piece that fills with water and then cascades over. Located near the Center’s north entrance, the Water Garden will serve as a place for reflection and relaxation.”
