Cover Up


So now we’re a tourist destination. Who knew? Remember when you were desperately clamoring to get off campus every chance you could? Well, according to the January/February issue of AAA’s Westways magazine, UCSD is one of Southern California’s campuses “designed to encourage people to learn and think and dream,” and where you can get “a refresher course in the joys of learning.” The article featured the Stuart Collection’s latest addition, artist Tim Hawkinson’s 180-ton Bear in the Engineering Quad, as well as Alexis Smith’s 560-foot-long snake slithering up toward Geisel, Niki de Saint Phalle’s Sun God and Elizabeth Murray’s Red Shoe.
