Same Old Paradise by Alexis Smith - Stuart Collection at UC San Diego

4/6/2021; 14 minutes

Alexis Smith originally created the mural "Same Old Paradise" in 1986 for temporary display at the Brooklyn Museum, after which it was stored for over 30 years. Now the massive mural - 62 feet long and 22 feet tall - has been permanently installed at the North Torrey Pines Living & Learning Neighborhood as part of UC San Diego's Stuart Collection. "Same Old Paradise" also served as the inspiration for Smith's "Snake Path," one of the collections most iconic works. (#36631)
