"Pugsly" from the "Landsailers" series by Neal Bociek
There are many art projects that utilize San Diego City’s utility boxes, but none are as creative and quirky as the “Landsailers” series by Neal Bociek. This steel sculpture art trail follows the San Diego coastline starting sequentially with five pieces in Pacific Beach and five more in La Jolla. Another great project by the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, these pieces combine elements of land and sea travel: sails, wheels, and sleighs. This is a temporary exhibit that has been in place since August of 2008 and will be removed August of 2013. Visit our La Jolla and Pacific Beach pages for pictures and maps, or check out Neal’s site.
