It looks as if giant globes have taken over Boston these past several weeks. From the Esplanade, to Logan Airport, and to other traveled areas all around Boston stand 48 globes decorated to address the matter of climate change.
The public art project “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” has come to Boston after originating in Chicago and moving around the country and the world. Artists decorate these globes in different, creative ways with ideas to combat environmental problems. A couple globes are also reserved for decoration by local organizations. The goal is social awareness to the environmental issues of our time and that there is hope for the future.
Founder of the initiative Wendy Abrams states the project came out of the idea of “public art with a purpose.” By forcing people to confront climate change with something fun, the project has been accepted by thousands and grown to a global scale.
According to The Boston Globe, the exhibit is around until the 15th of October, so make sure to catch as many as possible before they’re gone!
