In the Fall of 2011 the new $1 billion Central Terminal B opened for business at the Sacramento International Airport and Lipski’s grand chandelier Acorn Steam was among the new works of art to be unveiled, located just outside of the security area. Acorn Steam is comprised of three massive valley oak trees, which Lipski first encountered in Sacramento’s Capitol Park. The three faux trees are joined at the trunk by steel collars and massive chains that suspend the work from the ceiling. The chandelier has about 5,000 Swarovski crystals hanging from the branches that catch and reflect the sun light during the day as well as the 3,000 LED lights that activate the work in the evening. The canopy of the trees stretches 30’ in diameter and measures 12’ tall. Well known for his playful titles, Lipski’s title Acorn Steam is an anagram of Sacramento.
