Last summer, as part of our “Share the Love” campaign, we transformed the atrium lobby of the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco into an undersea fantasy. For two months, we decorated it with massive vinyl & fabric banners of ocean animals. But as a conservation organization, we didn’t want the banners to be used once and then get recycled or tossed out.

Enter the creative students at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

They agreed to take the banners and — as a challenge — create eco-fashion and green design works of art. I think you’ll agree: The results are impressive.

You can learn more about the art students’ project, and vote online (through January 31) at the SFGate website for your favorite design.
