WOMAN OF THE DAY: Maya Lin (1959-Present)
Maya Lin is a well known artist and architect. She was a 21-year-old undergraduate at Yale when she won a competition to design her most famous work, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Controversial at first, but now one of the capital’s most visited monuments, it proves the healing power of art.
