Unusual Objects (The Stuart Collection at University of California, San Diego)

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is object.  I immediately thought of the Stuart Collection, a permanent exhibit of modern art scattered around the sizeable campus of the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla.  While my husband attended an American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) “summer school” at the college last summer (yawn!), I spent the better part of a perfect weather day touring the collection  and taking photos of some very unusual and often larger-than-life objects.  I thoroughly enjoyed my experience so thought I’d share some of the interesting objects I discovered with you.
