—————–

1) a new permanent public work: Active Ecosystem (SMF) at the Sacramento International Airport

Camille’s latest permanent public artwork – Active Ecosystem (SMF) opens to the public on October 6, along with the new airport terminal. Commissioned by the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, this piece marks the first collaborative artwork between Camille Utterback and Michelle Higa.
The artists worked with an incredible team including Barry Threw, Masako Miyazaki, Meghan Jean Kinder, and Andre Salyer to realize this technically challenging piece.
Active Ecosystem (SMF) consists of a series of 14 LCD screens mounted across the glass surface of a three-story elevator shaft in the airport’s new ticketing hall. Animations controlled by the rise and fall of the elevator depict changes in different ecosystems, linking the human movement within the airport to the environment outside.
Since Active Ecosystem (SMF) is pre-security, you can also see the piece anytime after the airport opens on October 6.
The Sacramento Airport is also hosting a free Community Day preview on October 2nd where the public can view the new airport and all 12 art commissions located pre- and post- security. The collection includes works by Lawrence Argent, Mildred Howard, Donald Lipski, Christian Moeller, Ned Kahn among others. Camille will be present from 12-2pm. The event is free, but requires an RSVP.

The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission is also hosting several other public events. Please visit their website for more details.
