Art At The Dump: Recology’s Recycled Materials Art Exhibition | SF
The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco is a unique art program that provides Bay Area artists who work with recycled materials with scavenging privileges in the dump, access to discarded materials, a stipend, and 24-hour access to the company’s well-equipped art studio.
