Chicago 'Cool Globe' Art
Chicago "Cool Globe"
Chicago "Cool Globe", originally uploaded by celikins.
I spotted a cool globe this Friday in one in the Bank of America Building across the federal reserve bank. This summer 122 of these globes will exhibit in Chicago's lake front in a $3 million project called "Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet" from June to September.'
“Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” is a public art project designed to increase awareness of and promote solutions to global warming. The project unites corporations, government, non-profit organizations and the community at large to increase awareness of global warming through public art, Internet information, education and events."
Gauging from the work of art of the globe pictured here, the other 100 globes will be a great beauty to see. I was a fan of the Cow's. Other attempts were not as successful. This one I think has definite potential.

Based on your interest in the Cool Globes art project, I thought you might also be interested in the live auction set to take place tomorrow, October 5.

The Cool Globes exhibit will be auctioned to raise funds for the Chicago Conservation Corp Clubs, which provide environmental education opportunities for Chicago's youth.

Attendees include Al Franken, politician and comedian; Wendy Abrams, founder; Bears QB Kyle Orton; Sadhu Johnston, chief environmental officer; and Mayor Richard M. Daley, etc.

Media availility opens at 5:30, the silent auction begins at 6:00 and is followed by the 7:30 auction program at the Auditorium Theater, 50 E. Congress Parkway in Chicago.

It just seemed like something you'd be interested in attending or blogging about. Thanks for your time!
