Heads up for rabbits.
OK, one big rabbit. One big, red rabbit.
According to the Mercury News, Sacramento county officials have just approved $767,000 to have artist Lawrence Argent make a 56 foot-long fiberglass rabbit for the new terminal at Sacramento International Airport.
“The rabbit, to be painted fire engine red, will look as if it’s jumping through the building’s four-story atrium toward the baggage claim area. It will be diving into a sculpted stone suitcase with a swirling liquid vortex on its surface.”
The big bunny is due to arrive in 2011, when the work on the new airport terminal is complete. For a preview though, you might check out some of Argent’s other big art works, including this 40-foot blue bear that peers into the Denver convention center.
