A Vision for Broadway
Robert T. Matsui Gallery in Sacramento City Hall- 915 I Street
Open Monday through Friday 8 to 5
The show at Sacramento City Hall, “A Vision for Broadway,” will bring together images and plans from the Broadway Vision Plan, Broadway Augmented public art project and Historic records and images of the Broadway neighborhood, on loan from Sacramento Center for History. It will include 3D sculptures from 4 of the eleven Broadway Augmented projects, as well as an installation featuring artist Ben Hunt. The installation will include a sculpture of a lantern, which was the foundation for his Broadway Augmented project, 2D images of his virtual augment, and a 3D printed model of the virtual lantern. The installation will illustrate the creative process experienced by the Broadway Augmented artists. The show “Vision for Broadway” will display the history and a vision of the future for the greater Broadway neighborhood.
Sacramento Republic Offices- 2421 17th Street
Open Monday through Saturday 9 to 5
The four artists in this exhibition — Andrew Connelly, Chris Daubert, Mark Lanning and Emily Schleiner — were commissioned to create works about the Broadway Corridor. The Broadway district has a rich history; the street has some local landmarks such as the Old City Cemetery and the iconic Tower Theater. Its ethnic diversity is reflected in the businesses that populate the street, from its restaurants to its historic Chinese Family Associations. A major thoroughfare, it’s a street full of lively activity and interaction. Working with installation, sculpture, new media and photography, the artists will each respond to the unique identity of Broadway, capturing the spirit of the street and its people.
