Do Ho Suh’s iconic Falling Star sculpture, memorably perched atop the Jacobs Engineering building at UCSD, will get some special attention this Thursday, May 5! Spend an evening with one of San Diego’s favorite pieces of public art at MCASD‘s screening and discussion of Falling Star: Finding Home.
Korean artist Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star at UC San Diego is an artistic and cultural experience like no other.
San Diego has always been an art-loving city, but it’s no secret that funding, city approval, and location have been issues for a long time. The public art displays in San Diego are constantly changing – locations, type, mediums – and some exhibits have even been put together by the community to make certain neighborhoods a more aesthetically beautiful place. If you’ve ever seen a painted over square box on the side of the street in Ocean Beach or downtown, you’ve witnessed public art in action; the utility box project is a great example of community art, and proves the San Diego locals’ commitment to beautifying our city. Though funding and initiative has fluctuated, public art displays in just the past few years have blossomed and breathed life into the Bay, Embarcadero, and port areas of our beautiful city.
