For the new Pinnacle Bank Arena in the Haymarket Section of Lincoln, NE, 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. Thanks to Patrick Marold who helped craft the chocolates, and artist John McEnroe who cast them. This work measures 21’ x 13’ x 14” and is constructed of plastics, steel and LED lighting.
