What happens when art and engineering intersect?

Some pretty amazing things. And you can see them for yourself March 9 at Sacramento’s Hacker Lab.

Verizon, in partnership with the City of Sacramento, has created a pilot arts program that has brought together six pairs of Sacramento-based artists and engineers to collaborate on original artwork around one of the following five 5G themes: Revealing the Invisible, The Future of Together, Speed & Humanity, Portraits of Engineers and Inside the Systems of Technology.

“The City is excited about this collaborative exhibition,” said Natasha Greer, City Verizon Project Manager. “We encourage Sacramento residents to come see how artists and engineers creatively showcase their interpretation of technology and human interaction.”

The selected participants for Artists & Engineers were chosen through a nomination process in collaboration with partner institutions in Sacramento including Verge center for the Arts, Sacramento State, The Shop at VSP Global, Hacker Lab, M5 Arts, Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, Blue Line Arts, The City of Sacramento, and Axis Art Gallery.

The exhibition is free and open to the public from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Furthering its reputation as a hub for developing technologies, Sacramento in 2017 was selected as one of the first cities to host Verizon’s new ultra-fast wireless 5G network. Houston, Indianapolis and Los Angeles also are offering the service.
