The San Diego Unified Port District will celebrate a new public art piece in Tidelands Park at 11 a.m. on September 12 and invites the community to see “Penelope” by Fallbrook artist Michael Stutz. The 6-foot-tall bronze sculpture of the wife of Odysseus in Homer’s “Odyssey” will be installed in its new waterfront location overlooking San Diego Bay and the San Diego-Coronado Bridge in the northeast corner of Tidelands Park, 2000 Mullinex Drive. The artwork was first commissioned by the Port’s Public Art Program in 2009 and was previously located on the San Diego Waterfront between Seaport Village and Tuna Harbor. Due to the construction of an area park, “Penelope” was temporarily moved off the waterfront and placed into storage.
