When the Sacramento International Airport Terminal B was being constructed, it had a budget of $6 million for public art and was Sacramento’s single largest investment in public art at that time. This Virtual is about the most well-known artwork that was part of the project.
Leap, the most iconic art piece at the airport is a large 56-foot long, 10,000-pound, red rabbit made of steel and glass-coated aluminum. The sculpture actually consists of 2 pieces. The other part is a granite suitcase with a vortex hole on the baggage claim floor.
The artist, Lawrence Argent, stated that the rabbit is situated to look as though it has just leapt through the glass ceiling and is heading into the vortex of a granite suitcase positioned below it in the baggage claim floor.
Logging requirements: Take a photo of yourself, your GPSr device, or a personal item with any part of the Leap sculpture and post it with your log. Please do not send the photo in a message or email.
