“Cool Globes” on North Tryon Street
Where Are We In CLT?by Porter Metzler on July 2, 2020
Many summer travel plans have been canceled this year, but there is still a way you can go on a globetrotting adventure right here in the Queen City. 35 globes are calling the streets of Charlotte home for the remainder of the year and they are definitely worth making the trip to see.
The spherical art installations are a part of Cool Globes, a public art exhibition created to draw attention to climate change and search for solutions. In their words, they are creating “Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet.”
31 of the globes can be found Uptown on North Tryon Street between Trade Street and E 11th Street. The other 4 globes can be found at Camp North End, the US National Whitewater Center, Truist Field (Charlotte Knight’s Stadium), and the Charlotte Airport.
Each globe has a different design created by a different artist, including 7 created by Charlotte artist. One of our favorites globes, titled “Listen to the Children,” was made by a group of talented students from the Trinity Episcopal School Climate Justice Group.
