Urban Forest Project

design by Milton GlaserThe Urban Forest Project gathers 185 banners created by the world’s most celebrated designers, artists, photographers and illustrators. Each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement. Together they create a forest of thought-provoking images at one of the world’s busiest, most energetic, and emphatically urban intersections (New York: Times Square.) 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 that benefit students of the visual arts. Some banners embody visceral responses to pressing environmental, political and social issues. Others use the evocative power of nature to develop rich patterns and abstract forms that delight the viewer.
The images can be downloaded as PDF files, and it’s possible to order T-shirts with the design you choose.

I just discovered your website, and I'm finding it very informative. It's the first site I've seen that is dedicated to sharing interesting topics on all types of art and design. I just had to bookmark it. Keep up the great work!
