The Urban Forest Project is a design-centric socially conscious event in two parts. The first is a collection of 185 banners that will be on display in Times Square (from 1 September to 31 October 2006). The tree-themed banners (a selection can be seen above) represent work by a who's who of the creative community. All of them can be seen (and enlarged) on The Urban Forest Project site.
After the banners come down they will be made into tote bags and sold at an auction. Proceeds will be given to arts-related scholarship funds.
