Fifty-eight years in sculpture and thirty-seven years in arts administration have come together for Ruth Waters, founder and executive director of the Peninsula Museum of Art, now located in Burlingame and serving the Greater Bay Area.
A Seattle native, Waters graduated from Stanford University in 1955 and started working in hardwoods in 1957 (her mediums now include bronze, marble, constructed room-size sculpture, and painting).
Founder and director of the 1870 Art Center in Belmont (1977 - 2012), she was also the founder of the Peninsula Chapter of Women’s Caucus for Art, co-founder of the Peninsula Sculptors’ Guild, and co-founder of the Peninsula Arts Council.
