Red Rabbit in Sacramento

A giant red rabbit is hopping into the Sacramento International Airport's new Terminal B, due to open Oct. 6th.  The display of public art in the form of an attention-getting giant red bunny located near baggage claim will be a whopping 56 feet long and 19 feet tall. The rabbit will appear to be leaping into its own suitcase, complete with a  "swirling vortex," suggestive of a rabbit hole. What would really impress me is a big sign near the red rabbit promoting rabbit adoption. There are hundreds of rabbits at rescues nearby waiting for new homes.  Visit the Sacramento House Rabbit Society,  Friends of Unwanted Rabbits, City of Sacramento Animal Services and the Sacramento SPCA  A real red rabbit, Rhett Bunnier (shown above), is a young male Palomino rabbit available for adoption from the Sacramento House Rabbit Society.  Photo below:  Finishing touches being put on the red rabbit sculpted by Lawrence Argent)
