Stuart Collection

Stuart Collection The Stuart Collection is UC San Diego's collection of site-specific sculpture created by leading artists of our time.

The Stuart Collection seeks to enrich the cultural, intellectual, and scholarly life of the UC San Diego campus and of the San Diego community by building and maintaining a unique collection of site-specific works by leading artists of our time. It has been inventive in both its curatorial point of view and its working processes. The collection results from an innovative partnership between the university and the Stuart Collection. Under an agreement forged in 1982 (and renewed in 2003), the entire campus may be considered as sites for commissioned sculpture. It is further distinguished from a traditional sculpture garden by integration of some of the projects with university buildings. "As UCSD increases in size and stature, so the Stuart Collection continues to add provocative new works to the landscape, reflecting the quality, ideals, and spirit of the university."

Installed on the UCSD campus in 1983, Niki de Saint Phalle's "Sun God" was the first work commissioned by the Stuart Collection - and Niki's first permanent outdoor work in the United States! This week it's getting a "facelift" - old paint stripped off, new gold leaf applied to the crest, and a few new coats of paint to fully restore it to its original brilliance. Stop by to take a look at the progress!
