2010 Twentieth Anniversary of the Recology Artist in Residence Program
Art at the Dump: Twenty Years of the Artist in Residence Program at Recology
July 21–September 25, 2010, Intersection for the Arts

Art at the Dump celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the art and education program at Recology San Francisco, a one-of-a-kind program enabling artists to work with materials from the waste stream, while teaching the public about recycling and resource conservation. The exhibition presents a sampling of work made by some of the more than eighty artists who have participated in the program since 1990, ranging from sculpture, photography, painting, and drawing to performance, video, textiles, and musical composition. The work often runs counter to traditional notions of what art made from found materials should look like. A publication documenting the program will be available for sale. Also on public display at the 16th Street Mission BART Plaza Recycling in Color, an exhibition created by youth at Oasis for Girls who participated in a free workshop led by former Recology AIR artist Nicole Repack.
