An enormous, very fancy Red Shoe seems lost among the trees in a corner of UC San Diego!
Red Shoe is an unusual outdoor sculpture by Elizabeth Murray, created in 1996. It’s part of the University of San Diego Stuart Collection.
I say unusual, because it stands among eucalyptus trees and seems oddly–to me–out of place. Like a shoe from a fairy tale, dropped in a forest. But I think that was the intention!
Faceted, colored objects are scattered on the ground nearby, like fallen jewels.
The paths in this corner of the UCSD campus, by North Torrey Pines Road and Revelle College Drive, are seldom trod. By ordinary folk, that is.

One thought on “A giant Red Shoe hidden in the trees!”
Well that’s not something you see every day, a giant shoe! What an interesting piece of sculpture.
