In March 2003, Lin attended the dedication of one of her installations, a winter garden in the lobby of the American Express Client Services Center in downtown Minneapolis. At noon, she gave a presentation to American Express employees in the cafeteria, showing slides and explaining how the work was related to some of her other pieces (like "Topographic Landscape"). She also answered several questions. One woman asked Lin if she could tell them how she designed the Vietnam Memorial. Lin laughed. "No," she said. "Not today."
