This sculpture, acting as both sign and symbol for the regional bus terminal in Reno, Nevada, was created from an actual bus--a 1962 GMC 'fishbowl' transit bus, sliced and reassembled to taper at the rear. It is lit from within, and also has working exterior head, tail and running lights. In 2008 Lipski created another piece for the terminal in Reno's twin city, Sparks.
