Ruth Zuckerman

Gifted to the museum by Bernard A. Zuckerman in 1999 to commemorate his late wife, this collection surveys forty years of Ruth Zuckerman's work from 1953 to 1993. Objects include significant sculptures in stone and bronze, photography, paintings, plaster maquettes, and the artist’s personal archives.

Ruth Zuckerman is best known for her fluid, figurative sculptures, based on universal themes of family, love, and protection. Insieme III, considered the artist’s masterwork, is currently on view in the Ruth V. Zuckerman Pavilion at the Zuckerman Museum of Art. The sculpture is part the museum's inaugural exhibition, From Earth and Fire. The show also includes several more of her works in stone, as well as some of her bronze pieces from the KSU permanent collection.
