"Let this sculpture be a symbol for all the people...working with others on the planet to create a happier and more enlightened humanity." –Jonathon Borofsky

Each year we share the important ways your donations go to work at the Museum and ask for your support as we embark on another year of exciting exhibitions and enriching public programs. This year we celebrate La Jolla's iconic sculpture, Hammering Man at 3,110,527 by artist Jonathan Borofsky.

Meet the Maker: Molly M Designs

Molly McGrath is the creative mind behind Molly M Designs. She trained professionally as an architect, and after using a laser cutter to make architectural models, recognized its unique potential to make jewelry and other objects. Her approach to design is heavily influenced by her background in architecture—a synthesis of concept, form, material, details, connections, and use.
