Book Overview

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.

This 12 thick book was in a 5.5 inch box without a single piece of packing whatsoever, thrown in a 12 thick box. How it beat me despite being tossed around inside, but I no longer consider it NEW ''.

   Lovely autobiography
I have been looking for a book on Asian female artists. Bought this book as a Christmas gift for my little budding 5 yo artist friend, and she loved it. The book provides a biographical background to Ruth's life, and some famous names associated with her. The pictures are also very interesting.

   Ruth Asawa is a worthy role model for young artists
The last year my daughter and I went to see a Ruth Asawa exhibition ; we both fell in love with her sculptures. I have received this book for Christmas and she loves it. The drawings are engaging and the story is great. This is a beautiful book for any child who is interested in art, especially girls looking for role models. Art history is dominated by males, but there are many females who finally get the spotlight they deserve.
