Cool Globes Program - Pittsburgh, PA

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

While walking Downtown Pittsburgh, we noticed this beautiful mosaic globe with flowers. We weren’t quite sure what this was, so when we returned home we did some research. We believe this may have been part of a public art project that started in Pittsburgh in 2018.

Apparently, there are about 30 spherical sculptures located throughout the city. Each custom-made globe features action steps citizens can take to reduce climate change — increasing energy efficiency in buildings, avoiding pesticides, buying products made with 100% post-consumer materials and much more. Unfortunately during our visit, we only came across this one.

The Cool Globes Program was launched in Chicago in 2007, and has traveled to 4 continents & 20 cities.

If anyone has information on this program or the globes, please share!!
