Wire Sculptures by Ruth Asawa

We visited a small portion of the Di Young Museum in Golden Gate Park this weekend and came across these stunning wire scuptures by Ruth Asawa. They were beautiful with the light casting such interesting shadows on the concrete walls.

Ruth Asawa is an American artist, who is nationally recognized for her wire sculpture, public commissions, and her activism in education and the arts. In San Francisco, she has been called the "fountain lady" because so many of her fountains are on public view. In her website, you can learn about her life, her work, and her development as an artist.
