Ruth Asawa





Ruth Asawa is an artist best known for her fountains and wire sculptures. Being of Japanese ancestry, she and her family were among the 120,000 people living along the West Coast of the USA who were interned. On this experience, Asawa says: “I hold no hostilities for what happened; I blame no one. Sometimes good comes through adversity. I would not be who I am today had it not been for the Internment, and I like who I am.”
