Cool Globes is a non-profit organization established to raise awareness of climate change and inspire individuals and community leaders to embrace solutions. The public art exhibit featured larger-than-life globes each designed to depict a solution to global warming.
In the summer of 2007, “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” was launched in Chicago. Nancy was among an international group of artists selected by jury to design and create globes promoting solutions to climate change. Each of Nancy’s 5′ diameter globes is painted with acrylic and sealed for long term outdoor display.
Nancy’s first globe, “Nature Nurture” was sponsored by Goldman Sachs. The globe was later purchased by Abbott and generously donated to the Greenbelt Cultural Center in the Lake County Forest Preserve for permanent exhibition.
Nancy’s second globe, “Community Care,” was sponsored by Southwest Airlines. It has been traveling throughout the U.S. and Europe, and was most recently on display in Amsterdam.
“Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” first displayed on Chicago’s lakefront. The Cool Globes program, aimed at raising awareness about global warming, has traveled throughout the United States and is currently touring Europe.
