AMAZING STUART COLLECTION--The Stuart Collection is a collection of public art on the campus of the University of California, San Diego that is always open and there’s never a fee to view it. Founded in early 1980s, the Stuart Collection is a unique collection of site-specific works by leading artists of our time. The collection is further distinguished from a traditional sculpture garden by integration of some of the projects with university buildings.
With the enthusiastic cooperation of the UCSD Department of Visual Arts, and financial support from the Stuart Foundation, the Friends of the Stuart Collection, the National Endowment for the Arts, and many other organizations, foundations and individuals, the collection has initiated and completed an impressive range of projects.
The selection of artists for commissions is based on the advice of the Stuart Collection Advisory Board, which is composed of art professionals of international stature. Artists are invited to conceive and develop proposals with the assistance of the Stuart Collection staff.
Projects chosen for realization by the Advisory Board are then submitted to a campus review process. The chancellor has final approval for all commissions.
To date 12 artists have contributed work to the Stuart Collection
