The Port of San Diego invites the public to celebrate the installation of artist Michael Stutz’s elegant bronze sculpture, “Penelope.” Her new waterfront location overlooks San Diego Bay and the San Diego-Coronado Bridge. The statue is sited in the northeast corner of Coronado Tidelands Park, 2000 Mullinex Drive. The event is on Thursday, September 12, 2019, from 11 am to 1 pm. Parking is available in the Coronado Tidelands Park parking lot.
The Port of San Diego is pleased to announce the installation of “Penelope.” The bronze artwork, standing nearly seven feet tall, was first commissioned by the Port of San Diego’s Public Art Program in 2009. “Penelope” was previously located on the San Diego Waterfront between Seaport Village and Tuna Harbor. Due to the construction of Ruocco Park, “Penelope” was temporarily moved off the waterfront and placed into storage. The installation celebration marks the end of a long hiatus for “Penelope,” who represents a figure from the Greek epic poem The Odyssey, and her re-emergence as a beautiful public artwork that can be enjoyed by all who visit Coronado Tidelands Park. The event will feature free food and refreshments, as well as live music. Please RSVP to the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
