See ‘Cool Globes’ in uptown

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Take a walk through uptown Charlotte and you’re likely to see a few giant globe sculptures.

“Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” is a free, outdoor public art exhibition featuring 35 globes, each sharing a simple way to help reduce climate change.

“Cool Globes is a creative and unique educational opportunity for our community,” said Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles in a news release. “I urge everyone to visit the art exhibit and learn about small steps they can take to help make our environment more sustainable.”

The primary display is located along North Tryon St. between Trade and East 11th, with 31 globes spanning eight city blocks.

The remaining four globes are located at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the U.S. National Whitewater Center, Truist Field and Camp North End.

Seven of the globes were created by local artists, including a group of students from Trinity Episcopal School.

Cool Globes will be on display through the end of 2020.
