Penelope - Public Art Update
Posted by: Coronado Arts 1 week, 3 days ago

 The Port of San Diego is planning an eighth public art installation in Coronado. “Penelope” is a hand-fabricated bronze sculpture, representing the wife of Odysseus in the ancient epic “The Odyssey.” It is set to be installed in the next few weeks in Tidelands Park. The City Council received an update on the installation at its meeting earlier this week. The artwork was created by regional artist Michael Stutz and commissioned by the Port. It previously resided on the Port’s Embarcadero. The pedestal features an inscription that reads: “Weaving by day, Penelope would be forced to choose a new husband when her tapestry was complete. But all the while she waited, unraveling her work by night, steadfastly sure of Odysseus’ return.” The proposed Coronado site is at the juncture of the Bayshore Bikeway and the Pedestrian Path in Tidelands Park. The sculpture will be oriented toward the San Diego-Coronado Bridge. The site is on the water side of the sidewalk and the Port will construct an accessible, concrete footing at the site. The Port will also refurbish the sculpture, transport and install it. All associated costs of the project, acquisition, installation, and maintenance are the responsibility of the Port.
