Recology Artist in Residence Program

San Francisco, CA - United States


The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco is a one-of-a-kind program established in 1990 to encourage the conservation of natural resources and instill a greater appreciation for the environment and art in children and adults. Artists work for four months in studio space on site, use materials recovered from the Public Disposal and Recycling Area, and speak to students and the general public. Over the last twenty-five years, more than 100 professional artists and twenty student artists have completed residencies.

The studio is located at Recology San Francisco, a 44-acre transfer station and recycling facility. Located west of Highway 101 near the former Candlestick Park, the facility is also home to a three-acre sculpture garden containing work by past artists-in-residence. By supporting artists who work with recycled materials, Recology hopes to encourage people to conserve natural resources and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment.
