Asawa, Ruth, Artists' Files, Ankrum Gallery Records

Renowned Japanese-American sculptor and arts education advocate, Ruth Asawa was born in California in 1926. Her work can be found in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and throughout museums and public areas of San Francisco. During WWII, Asawa, along with her mother and five of her six siblings, were sent to the Rohwer War Relocation Center in Arkansas. Her father, Umakichi Asawa, was arrested by FBI agents in February 1942 and interned at a detention camp in New Mexico. After leaving Rohwer in 1943, Asawa attended school in Milwaukee and later, at Black Mountain College in North Carolina where she took courses in a variety of different art forms, eventually experimenting with wire. Her looped-wire sculptures earned her prominence in the modern art world, with exhibitions of her work in museums in New York and Californa beginning in the 1950s and 1960s. Help transcribe her artists' files from the Ankrum Gallery.

Broadside for Kairrissah

Broadside posters were made to advertise events. Put up one week, by the next week they were often torn down or covered up with another poster. However, those that were saved for posterity often provide us with a glimpse into everyday life in the past. Theater posters provide us with information about the shows, the actors, and the audience. This broadside for the Front-Street Theater in Baltimore advertises the 1834 production of Kairrissah. Help us transcribe this document to not only learn about the production, but about segregation in Baltimore in the 1830s.
