Art at UCSF Mission Bay is featured as the third episode on UCTV Prime, a new YouTube original channel from the University of California. The series, “Naked Art,” began with a tour of the public art collection at UC San Diego and continued with a piece about UCLA’s Murphy Sculpture Garden.
The March 16 episode features interviews with UCSF Chancellor Emeritus J. Michael Bishop, MD, UCSF researcher David Morgan, PhD, artist Paul Kos and Millicent Magiera, a UCSF facilities manager who has been involved with installation of many of the pieces.
The Bishop art collection at UCSF Mission Bay is named in honor of Nobel laureate Bishop, who served as chancellor at UCSF from 1998 to 2009. He established the world-class public art program to coincide with the ongoing construction of the new campus as a way "to create an environment that will be a credit and benefit to the entire community, a stimulating and pleasant place to work and visit, and a permanent legacy to the city."
