AIR Program

The Artist in Residence Program at Recology CleanScapes is a unique art and education program that provides King County artists with access to discarded materials, a stipend, and a studio space at the Recology CleanScapes Material Recovery Facility. Modeled after the Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco, Recology CleanScapes hopes to encourage people to conserve natural resources and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment, by supporting artists who work with recycled materials.

During their residencies, artists have scavenging privileges and access to the company's art studio. Artists speak to school classes and adult tour groups about the experience of working with recycled materials. At the conclusion of their residency, Recology CleanScapes hosts a public exhibition and reception for the artists featuring the artwork made during their residency. When the residency ends, artists contribute artwork to the program's permanent collection and these pieces continue to be shown in off-site exhibitions that promote recycling and reuse.
