David Borgerding 

BIOGRAPHY

David Borgerding was born in Grand Rapids Michigan.  Inheriting a passion for “making things” from his father and learning to weld at the age of 14 surely charted the course for Borgerding’s future in the arts. 

After receiving a BFA in sculpture from Kendall College of Art and Design, Borgerding continued his studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Upon completing his MFA at SCAD in 2000, he moved to New Orleans, and continued to study sculpture but began focusing on abstract, organic, and fabricated bronze pieces. 

In 2008, he built his current metal studio, located in the Irish Channel neighborhood of New Orleans. Intensely active in the studio, David works on large, public and private commissions as well as smaller pedestal sized sculptures.  He is the recipient of two grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and has exhibited nationally and internationally, appearing in noted private, corporate, and institutional collections.
