Join us for a morning walk and photo shoot at UCSD.
The Stuart Collection consists of 18 internationally renowned sculptures around the UC San Diego campus. Most of them are outside and publicly available. Join us as we walk the campus and tour as many of these artworks as possible. We will get an early start while the sun still provides us with the beautiful morning light.
We have photographed many of these sculptures on previous meetups to the campus, but this meetup will specifically target the artworks. If you are interested in previewing information about the Stuart Collection, there is a webpage online at:
There is also a free downloadable iPhone app with videos about each artwork in the collection. It is available at:
Stuart Collection App
We will meet at the parking lot at the Medical Center at the corner of Gilman Drive and Russell Drive at 7:45AM and begin our walk at 8:00AM sharp. You can park in any metered space, or any space marked “A” or “B”. Do not park in any restricted spaces.
We should be finished with our shoot around 11:30. Those who want to can have lunch at a nearby Vietnamese Restaurant, Pho La Jolla which is less than five minutes away by car. The address and phone number is 3211 Holiday Ct. La Jolla, CA[masked]) 587-4688.

To add something unique to this shoot, each member is encouraged to upload one photo of each sculpture. Let us see how we photograph the sculptures.
Each member will receive a map / brochure showing the location of each sculpture with a brief description.
What to bring: Walking shoes, the route is about 3 ½ miles long. As for lenses, several types will work, wide angle, prime and long zooms. Medium zooms such as 24-70mm are probably best or lenses such as[masked]mm,[masked]mm, etc.
