urban forest project

have you heard about this? i'm probably way late to this party, but so very fun! from september 1 thru october 31, 185 banners created by some of the most celebrated designers and artists around (including four from kate spade) will be hanging together in the middle of times square. each of the banners will depict a tree or a tree metaphor to create an urban forest. how fabulous! after the exhibit is over, the banners will be recycled into totes and sold at auction with all procedes going to students of the visual arts. i hope to see this in person!
