Nineteen commissioned sculptures, with more to come, have been erected throughout the UC San Diego campus.

Unfortunately, we lost much time attempting unsuccessfully to find a...More

Pick up a free map and enjoy the wonders of discovering the talking tree (near the library), the controversial water fountain located near the President's office, the giant rock bear, the tilted house, or other public art. It's spread all over the UCSD campus and...More

If you are into college campuses and especially art, this is a must see. The quantity and variety of art is simply breathtaking.

The Stuart collection has installed a world-class collection of public art throughout the UCSD campus. From Robert Irwin to Alexis Smith, the collection is not to be missed. Check to see what days Do Ho Suh's Fallen Star is open to the public.

Some beautiful and unusual works of art, but not easy to find. I started with a campus map from the information center, which did not show any of the individual pieces. Then got a map from the Stuart collection website, which showed the approximate locations...More

I always suggest that UCSD visitors "do" the Stuart collection because it takes them all over campus. It takes several hours to do it all. Only drawback is the UCSD parking fees, so do it on a weekend.
