Scripps Turd (aka "Okeanos" by William Tucker)

The Scripps Turd sculpture, in front of Scripps Green Hospital on North Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla, was taken down in 2001.

I always meant to get a picture of it, but never got around to it. Some of the photos that were floating around the internet have disappeared. I found this one at Decrepit Old Fool, and I'm preserving it here as a monument to the genius of modern art.

According to Scripps, it's now at a nearby office park where it's less visible and less embarrassing.

Kudos to you! You have done a fine service by preserving this, it's one of those things that no one would believe yet there it was.
