Cool Globes “Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet”– Installed at the end of June, the globes are displayed along N. Tryon from Trade to 11th. Public art with a purpose, Cool Globes are designed to educate and inspire on solutions to climate change, with each globe illustrating individual steps we can each take.
There are a total of 35 globe-trotting globes in Charlotte, 7 of which are designed by local Charlotte artists: Max Dowdle, Britt Flood, Norma Gely, Rosalie Grubb, Jackie London, Rosalia Weiner, and the students at Trinity Episcopal School. The Cool Globes Charlotte exhibit was made possible with the support of Discovery Place, Trane Technologies and the City of Charlotte.
