Asher's work pulls in the already existing elements of the site, bringing symmetry to a previously asymmetric layout. UC San Diego Library, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093-0175 (https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/contact) Located on the grassy median in Mathews Quad, Asher's fountain is juxtaposed with a large American flag and a granite landmark commemorating the former Camp Matthews, a military training facility from 1917 to 1964, which occupied the land on which the University of California, San Diego now stands. The original flagpole from the military base still stands. Matthews Quad, University of California, San Diego; La Jolla, California, United States
