Ruth Aizuss Migdal started studying art and art history before the age of sixteen. Migdal went on to receive a BFA in painting and print making from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in painting and print making from the University of Illinois. In the mid-60’s, Migdal began to work on sculptures. With the help of her peers and her own academic background, Migdal taught herself the technical requirements of the medium.

“Here” is part of Migdal’s “Diva” series. This 14-foot tall red lady is about the power, strength, and exhilarating freedom of women. The “Divas” dance and sing. They are marvelously happy as they take huge bites out of life. They take chances and zoom with energy as they fly with even more life.
