Ruth Asawa was born on this day in 1926. She is known for her extensive body of hanging wire sculptures as well as her work as an activist and advocate for arts education. David Zwirner announced exclusive representation of the artist's estate early in 2017.

Loving this hanging sculpture by #RuthAsawa

From a Farmer's Daughter in Norwalk, CA, to the WW2 internment camp in Anaheim, where she met and trained with fellow Internees who had been animators for Walt Disney, to Black Mountain College, Ruth Asawa lived a full and interesting life. In the end, she became one of the most prominent Advocates of the Arts for childrens' education in the nation. • • “A child can learn something about color, about design, and about observing objects in nature. If you do that, you grow into a greater awareness of things around you. Art will make people better, more highly skilled in thinking and improving whatever business one goes into, or whatever occupation. It makes a person broader.” • • We admire and applaud the late Ruth Asawa. 1926 - 2013 • #rvdinspiration #interiordesign #ruthasawa #sundayvibes
