New medical building to showcase artwork

The Sacramento Bee

A newly opened midtown medical building will showcase art on Second Saturday.

The Sutter Capitol Pavilion, across L Street from Sutter's Fort, which officially opened Tuesday, is a 200,000-square-foot medical office building, housing 40 specialist doctors' offices, 128 exam and procedure rooms, four outpatient operating rooms and other services.

The building was designed by Lionakis and Boulder Associates and built by the Boldt Co.

The "Art and Medicine" event is free and open to the public from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. today. Free parking is available at the Sutter Community garage, 28th and N streets.

Much of the art to be showcased will be commissioned works and limited editions from local and regional artists. Several artists will be on hand to talk about their work.
