Overview

“24M: The DRIVE4COPD Monument” is a visual representation of the impact of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the United States. Reaching 14 feet at its highest peak and spanning half a football field, this first-of-its-kind monument comprised of 24 large-scale pinwheels to represent the 24 million Americans who may be living with COPD. In creating 24M, Kalish was inspired by the pinwheel that symbolizes DRIVE4COPD since it speaks to a person’s ability to breathe.
