urban forrest project

the Urban Forest Project brings 185 banners created by the world’s most celebrated designers, artists, photographers, and illustrators to New York’s Times Square. Each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement.

together the banners create a forest of thought-provoking images. following their display, (September 1–November 30, 2006) the banners will be recycled into tote bags and sold at auction, with proceeds going to scholarship and mentoring programs benefitting students of the visual arts.

these are my favorites. artists from right to left: Carri Corbet, Louise Sandhaus, Alan Dye, and Carmen Garcia. now I want a tote bag! I bet they’ll go for lots of money in an auction.
