Biography   John Outterbridge


John Wilfred Outterbridge was born in Greenville, North Carolina in 1933. After one year at Agricultural and Technical College, Outterbridge joined the Air Force in order to obtain the G.I Bill which would enable him to finish his education.  While in the service, he began painting signs and murals in officer's club. 

After his discharge, he moved to Chicago and studied at the American Academy of Art.  He moved to Los Angeles in 1963 and soon was doing installation work for the Pasadena Art Museum.  An African-American, much of Outterbridge's work centers around black culture.  A retrospective of his sculpture was held at the California African American Museum in 1993.  He currently lives in Los Angeles
