Description
DSF is raising funds to support fabrication and installation of an iconic placemaking sign at the Old Sacramento Waterfront.

Fabricated by Sacramento-based Pacific Neon, the unique new 26-foot high landmark sign atop the California State Railroad Museum, greeting visitors as they approach downtown on Interstate 5 and celebrating the city's innovative spirit and original waterfront neighborhood.

"This sign will definitely make its mark."

You can help to light the Sacramento skyline too! Funding for the project is currently being raised through private donations by the Downtown Sacramento Foundation and the Rotary Club of Sacramento's young professionals group, with the goal of erecting the sign by the end of the year. To date, about $85,000 has been raised-nearly half the cost of the finished project. Donations from the public are welcome.
