Everything She Touched by Marilyn Chase
Ruth Asawa is a celebrated sculptor who grew up on a California farm. As an adolescent she was held at a Japanese-American internment camp, where she drew on resources of an artist also interned there. At Black Mountain College, she not only developed her signature hanging wire pieces and public art sculptures, but she also made intriguing drawings. While fighting through lupus, she worked hard to revolutionize arts education in San Franciso, and created a number of public sculptures. The book weaves together many voices—family, friends, teachers, and critics—to offer a complex and fascinating portrait of the artist.
