OMA’s Maya Lin: A History of Water has the city excited about its flagship museum

by , and


Orlando Museum of Art's massive Maya Lin exhibition, just the latest coup since museum director Glen Gentele took over, is cause to renew your OMA membership. The spectacular display is Lin's first major show in Florida, a gathering of sculptures, installations and multimedia work addressing the natural world, particularly water – which, it's safe to say, is a topic of significant interest in this state.

Richard Reep – The built environment
Jessica Bryce Young – The missing piece
Yulia Tikhonova – This woman's work
