From the Japanese internment camps to the creation of the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts, Asawa’s life journey is filled with family, art, injustice, strength, education, and arts activism. Using lines, space and wire Asawa created sculptures that continue to inspire. It is a joy to learn about an artist who overcame so much to create beauty to share with so many.
