    David Wetzl and Kim Squaglia make an ideal pairing in their joint exhibit at Jay Jay. Wetzl's hyperactive compositions with references to cubism, surrealism, pop art, animation and technical drawing fit nicely with Squaglia's less-congested but equally compelling mixtures of pop and abstraction.


    Kim Squaglia's "Tropez" is a complex image of overlapping petals in cool tones.

    When the Sacramento International Airport's new billion-dollar terminal opened in late 2011, its cultural pièce de résistance was the 56-foot-long aluminum red hare that appears to leap into the building from the outside.


    The giant red hare, "Leap" by Lawrence Argent, in the airport's Terminal B is a distinctive piece of public art - and a rare sight in Sacramento.

    For inspiration, the city could turn to the Claes Oldenburg sculpture "Cupid's Span," near San Francisco's Ferry Building. Funding for public art has been built into city law since 1977 with a mandate that developers allocate 2 percent of a project's cost to public art.

    The saga of Ruby Bridges, a brave 6-year-old who became the first African American student to integrate Louisiana schools in 1960, came to life Friday at the Crocker Art Museum's Family Kwanzaa Concert.


    The Crocker Art Museum's Norman Rockwell exhibit shows how the artist's work developed, taking on a more serious tone in the 1960s. The Saturday Evening Post only wanted traditional views, so he moved to Look.

    Norman Rockwell's painting "The Problem We All Live With," on display at the Crocker through Feb. 3, inspired Deborah Pittman's multimedia piece.

    A Ruby Bridges puppet is controlled by, left to right, Slater Penney, Spencer Tregilgas and Will Klundt as dancers Nicole Manker, Andrea Porras and Hanna Yanni perform in Deborah Pittman's "Big Dreams, Small Shoulders" at the Crocker Art Museum on Friday.
