Additional Information: For this rail-inspired O!, Susan Knight used toy train tracks to create a dramatic pattern and distinctive texture across the entire surface.

The train tracks also represent Omaha's long history as a hub for train travel and the headquarters for Union Pacific, one of America's most well-known railroads.
