KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is preparing to install a Missouri River sculpture by architectural designer Maya Lin.

The museum says in a release that the artwork, “Silver Missouri,” is created from recycled silver. The sculpture was commissioned by the Nelson-Atkins and will be installed Nov. 15 in the Bloch Building.

Lin designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in 1981.

She says much of her work focuses on the natural world. Silver Missouri is part of her river series, which Lin began in 2009 with Silver River, of the Colorado River. She says the Missouri River has “an amazing pattern and flow.”

Lin will speak at the museum on the installation day and is expected to ask audience members to share their memories of the Missouri River.
