Overview

For the new Pinnacle Bank Arena in the Haymarket Section of Lincoln, NE, artist Donald Lipski created a giant box of chocolates, paying homage to Lincoln’s history as a center of chocolate manufacturing. Many of the chocolates have shapes and images that relate to symbols of Lincoln, past and present. This work measures 21’ x 13’ x 14” and is constructed of plastics, steel and LED lighting.

Goals
