Cool Globes in Balboa Park

Giant sculpted globes are now lining the path to the Natural History Museum at Balboa Park. I had had the pleasure of seeing and learning from them last weekend.

Local, national and international artists have created solutions to various issues affecting global warming in the form of 40 giant globes.

In 2008, Cool Globes was also on display in Washington, D.C., Chicago and in San Francisco. The exhibit will be moving to London in 2009.

The Cool Globes exhibit is the brainchild of environmentalist Wendy Abrams. Abrams's goal was to raise awareness of simple solutions to global warming.

You can see the Cool Globes at Balboa Park through November 30th, 2008. Go to for more information.
