For this design I wanted the representation to be simple and universal. It consists of a plant that bares the fruit of humanity. The plant itself represents the earth- humanity's life blood. The plants form consists of a single stalk which branches out into several leaves. Diversity is celebrated through the rich palate of "fruit" yielded by the plant. Additionally the fact that the "fruit" is centered in the stalk reflects that though we are different in many ways, we all came from the same source.
An additional variation is provided featuring a circle. It stands for the silhouette of the earth, moon and sun.
Finally, I thought it would be nice to note that the logo not only responds to the arts, but also the world wide green movement sweeping across many nations.
