Cool Globes

“Cool Globes reflects the essence of the Clinton Global Initiative…In the summer of 2007, the ripples of Lake Michigan reflected the artistry of Cool Globes and the power of inspiration. In future seasons, our shared capacity to change the world can create ripples that have no bounds.”
–President William J. Clinton, Preface to Cool Globes marketing book

The 2007 Chicago Cool Globes exhibit featured more than 120 sculpted globes displayed along Chicago’s lakefront and other locations throughout the City. Each artist was asked to transform a plain white sphere to create awareness and provoke discussion about a potential solution to global warming. Each globe is five feet in diameter, seven-and-one-half feet tall and weighs 2,300 pounds.

My globe was called “Unite to Solve Global Warming” and was based on the idea that the underlying issue of all of our global problems is fundamentally the disunity of humanity. Once we understand our common humanity and desire to make decisions based on what is ultimately best for the entire human family, we will be better positioned to handle difficult and complex problems.

My globe is now touring with a small group of other globes to Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles and London.
