Design Times Square: The Urban Forest Project brings 185 banners created by the world's most celebrated designers, artists, photographers and illustrators to New York's Times Square. Each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement. Following their display, (September 1 - October 31, 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.

See all 185 banners here. 22 students in the AIGA NY's Mentoring Program are included along with quite a substantial amount of Cranbrook Academy of Art alumni.
