The USC Fisher Museum of Art has installed a 13-ft bronze by Enrique Martínez Celaya, The Well. The tear-streaked likeness of a crying girl is part of a series the artist (and USC faculty member) began in 2011. Martínez Celaya, who studied quantum physics and teaches philosophy and poetry, is trending on museum schedules. In 2019 two large sculptures were installed at the Huntington. USC Fisher is organizing a one-artist show, "Sea, Sky, and Land: Towards a Map of Everything," for spring 2022. Other exhibitions are planned for the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College; Williams College Museum of Art; and UC Santa Barbara's Art, Design & Architecture Museum. 

The Well was donated to USC by Mei-Lee Ney.
