CoolGlobes Chicago 2007
From June-September 2007, the City of Chicago hosted “CoolGlobes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet,” an innovative project that uses the medium of public art to inspire individuals and organizations to take action against global warming.
Giant Globes Inc. designed, crafted and produced 150 five foot diameter fiberglass globes with the continents in exaggerated relief. We also built 280 miniature versions for tabletop display. In 2007 Bill Clinton gave several of our mini-globes to recipients of his Global Citizenship Award.
exhibit featured over 100 sculpted globes, each five feet in diameter,
displayed along Chicago’s lakefront from the Field Museum north to Navy
Pier. Artists from around the world, including Jim Dine, Yair Engel, Tom
Van Sant and Juame Plensa, designed the globes using a variety of
materials to transform their plain white sphere to create awareness and
provoke discussion about potential solutions to global warming.
