Art in the Desert

Many hundreds – or perhaps thousands – of years ago, the Kumeyaay people who once inhabited the Anza-Borrego Desert carved and painted mysterious lines, sun bursts, and human figures on cave walls and boulders. You may stumble upon these artifacts as you trek through Blue Sun Cave, Solstice Cave, or Carrizo Gorge, but really, the exact locations of these ancient artworks are not published to avoid the possibility of vandalism. For now, content yourself with looking up pictures of Anza Borrego rock art on the internet… and instead, visit modern-day desert art that you can see in person at The Borrego Art Institute.

Gettin’ Along – A Retrospective Exhibit of Photographer Major Morris

Now through Sept. 26, 2021

Major Morris (1921-2016) having grown up in poverty, used his photographic talents to offer insightful social commentary in a wide range of publications and exhibits. Mr. Morris spent the latter part of his life in nearby Escondido, where he self-published two books, “Nurture Their Dreams,” a photo book of his well-known black-and-white photographs, and “Escape from Black Bottom,” an anthology dedicated to “Grandmothers who nurture children’s dreams.” Both books are available in the gallery. Don’t miss this powerful and thought-provoking exhibit.

The Art Institute of Borrego is only five minutes away from the Springs at Borrego RV Resort via Di Giorgio Road and Palm Canyon Drive, and it’s AIR-CONDITIONED.
