Greetings!
Please join CURB at 35 Alexander Street, Yonkers, this Thursday, December 13 at 7:00pm for a special illustrated lecture with Dr. Miwako Tezuka on the making and meaning of Maya Lin's "A River is a Drawing." This exhibition is currently on display through January 20th at the Hudson River Museum.
The lecture will take place at the Center for Urban River at Beczak (CURB), 35 Alexander St., Yonkers. Ample free parking is available.
About the Exhibition: 
“Maya Lin: A River Is a Drawing” features new works by the artist and draws from Lin’s commitment to environmental issues and the ongoing effects of climate change. Using materials such as pins, marbles, wire, and bamboo, 12 works inspired by the Hudson River flow through the Museum inside and out and explore the river’s movement in time and space, how it shapes and is shaped by the land. Select works include: “Reed River,” 2018, a 3D-drawing of the river created from hundreds of bamboo reeds installed in the Museum's Courtyard, “Pin River-Hudson Watershed,” 2018, a recreation of the Hudson from the Adirondacks to NY Harbor; "Folding the Hudson," 2018, which defies gravity, features more than 22,000 industrial glass marbles creating the shape of the Hudson across the gallery floors, walls, and ceilings; “The Hudson Bight,” 2018, which visualizes the topology of the Hudson Canyon seafloor in a 30-foot wire mesh sculpture that cascades through the Museum’s Atrium; and “What is Missing,” a room-size, multi-channel video installation about species extinction and habitat loss.
This FREE event is a collaboration between the Hudson River Museum and Center for the Urban River at Beczak.​
