Sculpture artist Donald Lipski has a new installation going up near the NYU Hospital Complex on 34th and 1st Avenue. Titled Spot, the giant 38-foot-tall sculpture includes a massive dalmation dog balancing a real New York City taxicab on its nose.

Constructed out of fiberglass and steel, Spot, as it's called, is meant to offer a lighthearted welcome to patients and their parents entering the new Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, which is opening in June. [… Lipiski] pulls off a sort of double stupid pet trick: The cab is actually a real Toyota Prius. Spot will sit at it's current, uh, spot for the foreseeable future. Who's a gooood boy?
