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.

We love the delicate use of line and color in Ruth Asawa's "Flowers V," a lithograph from 1965. What's your favorite flower?

#TBT American sculptor, Ruth Asawa, is celebrated for her masterful ability to transform cold metal into living organic forms.
The artist has described her work as “a continuous piece of wire, forms envelop inner forms, yet all forms are visible (transparent). The shadow will reveal an exact image of the object.”
Asawa was a driving force behind the creation of the San Francisco School of the Arts, and in 2010 it was renamed the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts in tribute to her.
Pictured (right): Untitled, c. 1958 | Brass & galvanized steel. Sold at Rago for $627,500 in 2013.

no better place for a #RuthAsawa woven wire sculpture than a window -- her signature style was inspired by her travels to Mexico, where she learned traditional basket weaving techniques from artisans in Toluca. But the foundations of her artistic practice extend back to even before she studied under Josef Albers at the experimental Black Mountain College -- growing up in a Japanese-American internment camp, Ruth's first exposure to art was through fellow internees, cartoonists who had worked at Disney, and they instilled in her a love of drawing and line

Wonderful evening yesterday celebrating creativity & fostering thought @blackmountaincollege @toast @thecommsstore #toastbeing #ruthasawa

In the postwar era, visual artists used abstraction as an international language to transcend political narratives. For mid-century female artists, abstraction was also used to transcend oppressive gender narratives. “Making Space: Women Artists and Postwar Abstraction” has opened at @themuseumofmodernart, with works by more than 50 female artists, including Helen Frankenthaler & Ruth Asawa.
