Babson College World Globe

This past Winter/Spring Studio Fresh took on its most daunting project to date. Painting the world!!

We were hired by Babson College to repaint their 28 foot tall steel globe that had fallen over disrepair since its last renewal in the 90s. After settling on the many layers of details and information that the map would include we picked a map to work off of and started painting in late Feb. Lee Kennedy Co and Marr worked together to construct an enclosure for the globe so it would stay warm and dry during the winter months we were painting. Over the course of 2 months we traced out our map, rendered the land masses and ocean features before labeling every country, major waterway and mountain range on the map.

While it was no small task to get this completed it was incredibly rewarding to see it rotating for the first time after it was done.
