Beautiful complexity at La Jolla’s Athenaeum.

Some amazing art is currently on display at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in La Jolla.

My favorite pieces in the Athenaeum’s 2018 San Diego Art Prize exhibition are by nationally renowned local sculptor Anne Mudge. Her stainless steel wire mobiles radiate a strangely organic quality that captivates the eye. As the pieces slowly rotate, casting mysterious shadows on the gallery walls, the complex, silvery structures dance through space and time.

I took some close photos, hoping to capture a fraction of the beautiful complexity.

I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!

  1. Those are cool sculptures, a little like a 3-D Jackson Pollock, but with a lot more curved lines, and more isomorphic. They look like they were fun and rewarding for the artist to make, and for the viewer to look at.

  2. Aren’t they amazing!
    This is where I was born and lived for much of my life.
    My family still lives here. I remember, as a small kid, when the Athenaeum, was just the library, where I would sit, transfixed, listening to Burl Ives play the guitar, sing, and ask for our kids input as he sang.
    It was cool.
