Maya Lin: A River Is a Drawing
is a groundbreaking exhibition developed in close collaboration between the Hudson River Museum (HRM) and this visionary artist, focusing on the theme of the Hudson River. With the Museum's architectural features and location along the banks of the river as a potent backdrop, Lin will create a series of new works and ambitious site-specific installations that invite visitors to interact.

The exhibition presents twelve works, with continuous focus on bodies of water, particularly the Hudson River. It begins in the lobby space with
Pin River-Hudson Watershed
, 2018, one of the largest in the series of her pin-river sculptures to date, composed of more than 20,000 pins. In the Museum's Courtyard,
, 2018, an immersive installation is created from more than 200 bamboo reeds in the form of a 3D drawing of the Hudson River basin. Another outdoor installation,
, 2018, is on HRM's veranda and overhang looking out to the river vista. The piece connects existing cracks, holes, bumps on the grounds, by filling them in with painted silver lines, visually connecting the Museum's campus to the river.
Don't miss your chance to see this fantastic exhibition - it closes on January 20!
We'll have a tour of the exhibition, followed by a light reception and conversation in HRM's spectacular
Glenview Historic Home.
Please register by 1/8/19 as we need to supply an attendee list to the museum ahead of our event - space is extremely limited!
