Michael Dunbar was born in California in 1947, but moved as a young child to Illinois, where he has lived most of his life. He has been creating both large and small metal sculptures for more than forty years. Dunbar has found inspiration in the machines, the industry, and the spirit of discovery that that has defined advances in human knowledge for centuries.
