Ruth Asawa

“Asawa lived an extraordinary life independent of her incredible body of work. Her path was a series of trials overcome and small paradises found—from internment camps in America to, later, a creative coming-of-age at Black Mountain College and in San Francisco, where she lived until her death in 2013.

Her legacy of generosity and openness to the world continues to grow along with her reputation as an artist, which was underappreciated during her lifetime despite everyone from Josef Albers to Buckminster Fuller declaring her genius indisputable. But that has been changing, year by year—just a few weeks ago, the US Postal Service announced they would be featuring Asawa on a new stamp out this fall.”
