Michael Kalish & The Monument
Michael Kalish, artist and sculptor, talking about the DRIVE4COPD 24M Monument that he designed and made. The monument represents the 24 Million people with COPD. 2400 license plates were used to make the pinwheels, and they are proportionate to the number of people in each state who have COPD. The monument is scheduled to travel to the 4 states with the greatest COPD population (California, Florida, New York and Texas).
