RECEPTION: Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to present a compelling exhibit, Born in the USA.

Immigration has been a touchstone of the U.S. political debate for decades. Even as most Americans celebrate their heritage and identity as a “nation of immigrants”, there seems to be a deep ambivalence about future immigration. Despite the complex issues surrounding the struggle of asylum, assimilation and deportation, increasing numbers of people continue to risk emotional and physical heartbreak for the opportunity to live a safer and better life by migrating to America. In some cases, the human toll mounts as men, women and children quietly disappear from the dessert landscape in pursuit of the “American Dream”.

Whether we are direct descendants of an immigrant or an immigrant ourselves, in the current climate, socially and politically, this subject is more relevant than ever.

Artists were invited to illustrate their personal concepts of the human struggle by confronting issues of immigration, or celebrate our great country’s vast ethnic and cultural diversity with art.

Art doesn’t just reflect the world — it engages with it.

This exhibit may depict scenes that some viewers find disturbing and not suitable for children.

During this event, we are please to feature the art of Barry Lundgren!

Barry has been woodturning for over twenty years. Although he has taken workshops from other respected and admired woodturners, Barry considers himself to be self taught. His inspiration is derived from the wood, itself. The shape of each piece is as important as the type of wood he finds. Every piece different in color, texture, scent and character. Barry states, “Some pieces are turned green and I find it fascinating how they warp and distort into finished pieces.”

Barry rough-turns lidded boxes, threaded urns, and salad bowls, then allows them to dry and stabilize. Artworks are remounted and turned to finish their shape then left to dry, staying symmetrical. “Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.”


Born in the USA is on display from May 16 through June 24, 2019. Meet the artists at the opening reception Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2pm–4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Art Center Morro Bay is open from 12pm – 4pm daily.
