Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) was an influential and award-winning sculptor, a
beloved figure in the Bay Area art world, and a devoted activist who
advocated tirelessly for arts education. This lushly illustrated book by
collage artist Andrea D'Aquino brings Asawa's creative journey to life,
detailing the influence of her childhood in a farming family, and her
education at Black Mountain College where she pursued an experimental
course of education with leading avant-garde artists and thinkers such
as Anni and Josef Albers, Buckminster Fuller, Merce Cunningham, and
Robert Rauschenberg. Delightful and substantial, this engaging title for
young art lovers includes a page of teaching tools for parents and
educators.
