Stuart Collection at the University of California, San Diego

A collection of commissioned sculptures around the university campus, developed since 1983. The first sculpture in the collection was Sun God by Nikki de Saint Phalle. There are also works by Ian Hamilton Finlay and Barbara Kruger, who used to teach at UCSD. The layout of the garden space is Abstract Modern so it is the outdoor equivalent ('Green Cube') of those indoor galleries known as 'White Cubes' but many of the artists are interested in site-related and context-sensitive sculpture (which is traditional in garden sculpture).
