Army during the Vietnam decade and by simple luck was never shipped to Nam I would like to thank Reston and Ken Burns for illuminating a dark corner of our country's past. This tale of the controversy surrounding the building of the Vietnam War Memorial on the National Mall mirrors the divisiveness of the War itself.
Reston carefully remains objective and is able to describe the deep artistic insight of the contentious Maya Lin in her seemingly simple design and meticulous process involved in Hart's bronze sculptures. Despite neither artists' willingness to change their personal concept, the final compromise gives the Memorial its powerful impact upon viewers. Readers should be sure not to skip the "author reflection" at the book's end as Reston sees the name of a friend on the wall and admits to a vague feeling of guilt at not exposing himself to the same degree of risk. His emotions mirror the effect the wall exerts on many of its visitors.
One person found this helpful. A great history of the Memorial. With all the in fighting it is a wonder that it was ever built. Maya Lin and her drive to get the Memorial built without changing her design is an interesting read on what goes on when committees meet they discuss her design and what they think needs to be changed in her design. I have visited this memorial in Washington DC many times and even after all these years I am still moved by it.
This book tells the story very well. Interesting discussion of the wall, the competition and the competitors.
Very revealing about Maya Lynn. I admire even more after reading this A fascinating story, especially interesting to artworld readers. It is still, after all these years, a controversial topic and in this book it is fairly presented and will surprise general readers who are unfamiliar with the process of creating a public monument.
