The Urban Forest Project
Sponsored by AIGA New York, Times Square Alliance and Worldstudio, The Urban Forest Project is a collection of banners created by 185 designers, artists, illustrators and photographers - all working with the visual metaphor of the tree "...to create a forest of thought-provoking images at the crossroads of the world." (i.e. Times Square)
The banners are on display now. Following the exhibition they will be recycled into tote bags and sold at auction with proceeds going to mentoring and scholarship programs that benefit students of the visual arts.
