  • Do you know Ruth Asawa? A daughter of Japanese farming immigrants, she studied art in the internment camps during WWII, where her family was detained from 1942-43. She went on to study at Black Mountain College, where her mentors included Josef Albers, R. Buckminster Fuller, and Merce Cunningham. Settling in San Francisco, she raised six children while making her hand-woven, geometric wire pieces, which were often crocheted.  Ruth was especially interested in the abstract silhouette her pieces cast onto the wall. In her personal life she was a strong advocate for art education in public school. Featured in today
