This is an Open Call for you to plant and participate in The Urban Forest Project! If you are a Washington, DC metropolitan designer or artist you are invited to take part in this exciting education and environmental initiative.
This spring, The Urban Forest Project, a global public arts and environmental initiative, will plant 100 street banners designed by local designers and students in the downtown Washington, DC area. Each banner will use the form of, or metaphor for, a tree to make powerful visual statements about the environment. Together they'll create a forest of thoughtful images in the heart of the nation's capitol. Once the banners come down from the light poles, the artwork will be repurposed into tote bags for purchase. Proceeds from the sales of the tote bags will go to non-profit environmental efforts that will aid Washington, DC in being a cleaner, greener and more sustainable city.
