First-Ever Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture Unveiled Outside Fiserv Forum
Globe to illuminate green following each Bucks win at home
The first-ever Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture was unveiled today outside Fiserv Forum’s Johnson Controls Entrance on the northwest side of the arena. The nine-foot-high by nine-foot-wide sculpture adorned with the Johnson Controls logo will be illuminated green after Bucks wins at Fiserv Forum.
“The Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture is a one-of-a-kind creation for Fiserv Forum, our fans and the city of Milwaukee,” said Fiserv Forum and Milwaukee Bucks President Peter Feigin. “We look forward to the sculpture becoming an iconic symbol of our arena and seeing it glow brightly in green after each Bucks home win. We thank Johnson Controls for our valued partnership and commitment to the community and Fiserv Forum.”
“The Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture will be a vibrant and welcoming symbol to all who enter Fiserv Forum and a reminder of our incredible partnership with the Bucks making this world-class arena smart, safe and sustainable,” said George Oliver, chairman and CEO, Johnson Controls.
Made of four stainless steel hemispheres to become a 3D version of the Johnson Controls logo, the globe will also be lit with Johnson Controls’ colors each night in addition to being illuminated following each Bucks win at home. The Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture also includes a flexible lighting system that can be programmed to represent special Fiserv Forum events to reflect the beating pulse of the state-of-the-art venue.
The Johnson Controls Open Globe Sculpture was designed by Downstream of Portland, Oregon, with fabrication completed by The Metal Shop of Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, and EDE of Chicago.
