NMWA Artist Spotlights

The NMWA’s blog is a must read, featuring women artists from a variety of movements and locations. Their most recent post gives us a quick biography of artist and activist, Ruth Asawa, an inspiration to us all through her work in the world of art and with San Francisco youth.
