Established in 1982, the Stuart Collection at UC San Diego is a unique assembly of commissioned works by leading contemporary artists, including Niki de Saint Phalle, Robert Irwin, Bruce Nauman, and William Wegman. Each project is tailored for a specific site on the 1200-acre campus, and the diversity of forms, materials, and scale reflect and enhance the topographical and architectural distinctiveness of UC San Diego. Many of the artists who have designed works for the Collection are seldom represented in public sculpture collections and a significant number of the artists were better known for work in other media before creating their first permanent outdoor sculpture for the Stuart Collection.

Giuseppe Verdi composed his "Messa da Requiem" in memory of writer and humanist Alessandro Manzoni, whom Verdi greatly admired. This monumental work for four vocal soloists, double chorus and orchestra premiered in Milan in 1874, with Verdi himself conducting. Though the Requiem enjoyed contemporary success it disappeared from the concert repertoire for a time, before being revived in the 1930s. It is now the most frequently performed major choral work, and is regarded (along with Mozart's Requiem) as the supreme composition in that genre. Recorded on 3/19/2017.
