thanks to my connection with the sacramento metropolitan arts commission, this past sunday i had the honor of attending the vip reception for the new airport art. after seeing all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes, it was doubly cool to see how fabulous it looks all finalized and in place!

where you can type in messages that are translated to music which plays through the horn (not pictured)
there is a free community preview day of the airport (docent tours of the art, too!) on sunday, october 2, 2011. be sure to check it out if you can–this is big for sacramento!
