Community members will get a literal and virtual charge out of new public art that will be unveiled at a dedication ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, at the Oak Tree Plaza at Covell Boulevard and Pole Line Road.
“Solar Filling Station” is an antique gas pump that has been reconfigured to charge laptop computers and cell phones. The artists are Diana Walker Smith and Olga Garzon. Their piece was the winner of the city of Davis’ Climate Change Art Project, funded by a $20,000 grant from PG&E and $10,000 worth of city municipal arts funds.
Ceremony speakers will include Mayor Joe Krovoza, City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson, Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, representatives of PG&E and Nugget Markets and the artists.
