San Francisco welcomes the Urban Forest Project!
Local renowned artists, designers and students have been busy designing street banners in support of outreach efforts to engage the public in the city's environmental efforts. All designs make a powerful visual statement using the tree as a symbol & metaphor. In the spring of 2011, The Urban Forest Project / San Francisco will plant 100 street banners in the heart of the city.
On January 23, 2010, a preview party at the Bayview Opera House celebrated the artwork created by mentoring teams that were paired with professional designers from AIGA San Francisco with local Bay Area high school students, as well as artwork from Academy of Art University students and alumni.
