    SPECIAL EXHIBITION ON VIEW

    MAYA LIN: BAY, POND, & HARBOR (LONG ISLAND TRIPTYCH)

    Bay, Pond, & Harbor depicts three landmark bodies of water on the East End of Long Island: Mecox Bay, Georgica Pond, and Accabonac Harbor. By using recycled cast silver, Lin captures the reflective, precious, and jewel-like quality of water. Through works of extraordinary beauty, the artist asks us to envision waterways as the irreplaceable circulatory system of the planet and consider how our actions can destabilize this fragile balance.
