Ruth Weisberg (b. 1942) is a Chicago-born artist working primarily in painting, lithography, and drawing. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Michigan. Weisberg began teaching at the University of Southern California, and was later appointed dean of the USC Roski School of Fine Arts from 1995 to 2010. Much of her work involves the identity, history, and memory, especially that of women and the Jewish people. These works can be seen in the collections of the Getty Center, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Metropolitian Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New York Jewish Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Biblioteca Nazionale d’Italia in Rome, and the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. They have been exhibited domestically and internationally, and Weisburg has received the 2009 Women’s Caucus for Art Lifetime Achievement Award, a Senior Research Fulbright, and others.
