Condé Nast Traveler asked 12 ‘visionaries’ to redesign a traditional globe by adding their own unique perspective. Some of the celebrity-participants include Ai Weiwei, Hillary Clinton, Richard Branson, Michael Bloomberg, and Christy Turlington. The Globes will be auctioned online via CharityBuzz.com and the proceeds from the sale of each artwork will be donated to a non-profit organization chosen by the visionary.
Ai Weiwei decorated his globe with dripping yellow paint, while Richard Branson’s globe is handwritten stating, “2013 is the year of the Ocean. I plan to listen to it everyday. Will you join me?” The globes are estimated to be worth $1,000 each, with one of Olivia Wilde’s artwork already fetching $1,850.
