Trash to Treasure? Don’t miss “Art at the Dump…”

Intersection for the Arts, Recology, and Hub Bay Area are pleased to present the exhibition, Art at the Dump: Twenty Years of the Artist in Residence Program at Recology at Intersection 5M. This exhibition celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the art and education program at Recology San Francisco, a one-of-a-kind initiative that enables artists to work with materials taken directly from the city of San Francisco’s waste stream, while teaching the public about recycling and resource conservation.

Art at the Dump presents a sampling of work made by some of the more than eighty artists who have participated in the program. Work in a variety of mediums-sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, performance, video, textiles, and musical composition-is represented, and often runs counter to traditional notions of what art made from found materials should look like. Read more about the exhibit here.
