Bob Morgan, sculptor


Bob Morgan sculpture by Bob Morgan Bob Morgan

Robert Berryman Morgan turns found objects into art, creating sculptures that draw on both his Catholic upbringing and his immersion in the counterculture of the 1960s and ’70s.

Born in Taylor County, Bob grew up in the Lexington area, where his father’s family has lived since the end of the 18th century. He traveled all over the country as a young man, meeting the likes of Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg. He has since seen that community of artists and writers devastated by the AIDS epidemic, and he has examined his own response to that tragedy through his artwork. Often autobiographical, his pieces frequently tell stories of birth, death, and rebirth. One of his goals, he says, is to use art to reach out to the young, at-risk, and addicted.

A winner of the prestigious Al Smith Brown-Forman Fellowship, Bob maintains a studio in Lexington’s Gallerie Soleil.
