Mayor Parker And Volunteers Paint The Blue Trees

Saturday morning Mayor Annise Parker and volunteers from the community grabbed their brushes and went to work making the city a little more blue. The Blue Trees project is a temporary art installation by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos that seeks to inspire awareness and discussion about global deforestation. The ultramarine blue color is biologically and environmentally safe, and will last until it's washed away. PHOTOS BY FRANCISCO MONTES.
