For the new Goodyear Ball Park in Arizona where the Cleveland Indians hold their spring training, Lipski has recreated Brancusi's Bird in Space, as tall as the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate (60' 6"), and with stitches on it, like a baseball. Constructed out of fiberglass, concrete and steel, it resides in a pool near the ballpark's entrance, anchoring an extensive mixed-use development. Images and text from Donald Lipski: donaldlipski.net
