Ruth Asawa: Sculptor, Educator, Arts Activist (virtual)

May 1 @ 7:00 pm

American sculptor, educator, and arts activist Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) is known for her extensive body of work including paintings, printmaking, public commissions, and especially her wire sculptures that challenge conventional notions of material and form. A firm believer in the radical potential of arts education, she also devoted herself to expanding access to art-focused educational programs by co-founding the Alvarado Arts Workshop in 1968 and the first public arts high school in San Francisco in 1982, which was renamed the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts in her honor in 2010. Come and hear about this pioneering and inspirational artist. Presented by Janet Mandel. Please email hopeprogs@mcl.org to register to receive link to program.
