CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A 200-pound aluminum globe will have a new home in Cedar Rapids.
The Gazette reports the 6-foot globe that originally was installed in 1953 at the Cedar Rapids airport will be placed in Kirkwood Community College's remodeled Linn Hall.
The globe was donated to the airport, where it remained until a remodeling. It was installed at the Cedar Rapids bus terminal in 1983 and remained there until 2008 flooding upended it.
The globe was put in storage. When it's installed at Kirkwood, the globe will be place near windows and will be visible from the sidewalk and parking lot.
Jim Kern, chairman of the city's Visual Arts Commission, says it will cost several thousand dollars to repair the globe. He hopes the work is done by early summer.
