For the busiest bus terminal west of Chicago, the Metro Terminal in El Monte, CA., Lipski has created an update on the tradition of a civic clock. Three double faced clocks made for town squares by The Verdin Clock Company of Cincinnati, are suspended on a web of stainless steel cables. The faces of the synchronized, computer controlled clocks glow at night. The work measures 30’ x 20’ x 1’ and is constructed of stainless steel catenary arch supporting mixed media civic clocks, each 11’ tall.
