If you haven't seen the tree-themed banners that are part of the Urban Forest Project Tacoma, you have until May 31 to view them hanging in the wild along Pacific Avenue as part of downtown Tacoma's urban jungle. Once the calendar strikes June, these art banners come down and get repurposed into one-of-a-kind messenger bags.
You can also go to http://www.ufp-tacoma.com to see the banner artwork and purchase T-shirts or posters with your favorite banner designs for $30 each. The messenger bags made out of the art banners will go on sale June 15, price to be determined. Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts, posters and bags will go toward planting and maintaining trees in Tacoma.
The Urban Forest Project Tacoma is a community collaboration featuring nearly 100 tree-themed banners by local artists, designers and students to raise awareness of the importance of trees in the city while celebrating the city's vibrant creative community. The banners create a forest of thoughtful images amid the concrete and asphalt of Tacoma's urban landscape.
