Ruth Asawa was a Japanese American artist best known for her wire sculpture, public art and activism, but she was initially trained in drawing and design. Explore her extraordinary prints temporarily on view at the Museum. Then learn about her experiences as a teenager in an internment camp in Arcadia and then in Arkansas and how she went on to become a nationally recognized artist in spite of the discrimination she faced. Then make a print representing your own personal triumphs.
