Anya Gallaccio sets ‘beautiful minds’ in motion with 3-D clay printing in San Diego Anya Gallaccio, local artist and professor from the University of California, San Diego, and Josh Miller, an assistant, discuss the clay formation from the Devil Tower creation July 23, 2015, at the Museum of Contemporary Art. (Giana Leone / San Diego Union-Tribune) By JAMES CHUTE Entertainment British artist Anya Gallaccio covered a gallery floor with roses in Brussels, suspended apples in Amsterdam, worked with ice in London and painted walls with chocolate in Vienna and Los Angeles. In the course of each exhibition, the installations radically changed as her materials inevitably deteriorated.

At the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego downtown she’s sculpting with clay. She’s creating a likeness of Devils Tower, a Wyoming monument that movie buffs may recognize from the 1977 science-fiction movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” “It doesn’t look like Devils Tower, does it?,” said a bemused Gallaccio, surveying her handiwork.
