Carol Newborg has created installations for over 30 years. She received an MFA from UC Berkeley in 1981 and is deeply involved in Arts in Corrections as a teacher and exhibit organizer, currently with the San Quentin Prison Arts Project. She taught at Cal Poly Pomona, UCLA Extension and multiple community arts programs. Many of her early installations were sanctuary spaces, while more recent installations were about freedom, symbolized by many hand-cut paper birds. Carol has exhibited her work nationally and in Mexico. Exhibits included the De Young as part of an artist-in-residency, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art rental gallery, curated exhibits in the East Bay, and the Tides Foundation. Carol Newborg also had a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, among other awards and artist residencies.
