Betye Saar, sculptor and installation artist, was born in Los Angeles, California in 1926. She received a B.A. degree (not in art) from UCLA in 1949, and an M.A. degree in graphic design from California State University, Long Beach in 1960. Then, deciding to be an artist, she returned to college at age thirty-four, and had another art experience more formative of her artistic vision.

As a child, she watched sculptor Simon Rodia build his now famous Watts Tower out of the accumulated junk, (showing 500 of 4358 characters).
