When it comes to public art in San Diego, nothing compares to the Stuart Collection at UCSD. Given the hit-and-miss quality of public art elsewhere around the county, the daring collection of 17 sculptures and pieces sprinkled throughout the La Jolla campus continues to push the boundaries of provocative public art. The latest addition to the acclaimed collection is quite possibly its most spectacular. And that's saying a lot.
Artist Do Ho Suh's "Fallen Star" is the 18th permanent sculpture commissioned by UCSD's Stuart Collection and it is one of those rare examples of public art that demands your jaw dropping attention. That's because "Fallen Star" is a house that appears to have dropped from the sky, landing atop the Jacobs Hall on the UCSD campus, teetering precariously on the edge of the high-rise building. It certainly is a sight to behold.
