See Ruth Asawa’s iconic looped- and tied-wire sculptures in the context of her extraordinary drawings and her lesser known sculptural forms.

Also travel through time in Seen in the Mirror: Things from the Cartin Collection featuring paintings from the last six centuries, drawings, sculptures, illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, artists’ books, and old master prints.
