Everything She Touched recounts the incredible life of the American sculptor Ruth Asawa. Born in California in 1926, Ruth Asawa grew from a farmer's daughter to a celebrated sculptor. She survived adolescence in the World War II Japanese-American internment camps and attended the groundbreaking art school at Black Mountain College. Asawa then went on to develop her signature hanging-wire sculptures, create iconic urban installations, revolutionize arts education in her adopted hometown of San Francisco, fight through lupus, and defy convention to nurture a multiracial family. Containing over 60 reproductions of Asawa’s art, author Marilyn Chase mined Asawa’s letters, diaries, sketches, and photos and conducted interviews with those who knew her to tell this inspiring story. Everything She Touched is a 224-page hardcover reference, sharing the store of a woman who wielded imagination and hope in the face of intolerance.
