The City of Reno has purchased the 2013 Burning Man sculpture "Believe" for $70,000.

In June of next year, the city will permanently install the sculpture in City Plaza following the construction of the new Virginia Street bridge, which began earlier this month. The sculpture was placed at the same location in July 2014 to serve as the backdrop for filming of the American Idol summer bus tour.

Curiously the artist Banksy has parodied "Believe" as "Mediocre" in his "Dismaland" exhibit park in the UK.
