This giant leaping red rabbit is 56 ft long and 15 ft high. It was made by Denver artist Lawrence Argent, from steel and aluminum and cost a whopping $767,000.

Here are some pictures of my arrival at Sacramento airport. The airport is not nearly as big as San Francisco International or the sprawling LAX (Los Angeles) airport, but I the Terminal B where I had arrived is practically brand-spanking new (it opened in 2011).  The $1 billion terminal contains $6 million of public art.  Its construction created some 2,400 jobs over 2 1/2 years during a recession that had left state and regional unemployment hovering around 12 percent.
