A lifelong firend of mine died last week I wrote an obituary at her request. It is relevant to this blog because Ruth Kadish at age 65 created an important global institution.
While serving on the San Francisco Airport Commision, Ruth conceived and implimented a long art and culture gallery in a United Airlines wing. The gallery gets several million visitors a year.
After Ruth created this airport gallery, her idea was copied in airports all over t he world. She created a market for art and cultural artifacts that had never existed before. Good work Ruth.
