  • Ruth Waters worked for fifty-plus years as a sculptor, and for thirty-five years in arts administration. She combined her experience as the founder and executive director of the Peninsula Museum of Art, located in Burlingame and serving the Greater Bay Area in Northern California until its closure due to the scheduled demolition of its building. Fortunately, the PMA website is expanding (like all the other art museums’ websites) and plans to have changing exhibitions online. Of the 29 artists who had studios in PMA (Waters included), twelve have found space in Arts Bias (Redwood City Art Center), a complex of artists’ studios in San Carlos, CA. The rest are scattered – but are surviving and creating.
