san francisco recycling center: artists in residence

San Francisco Recycling has had an innovative 3-acre private sculpture garden on top of a hill overlooking San Francisco Bay since 1992. The land functions as a buffer between the transfer station and the adjacent residential neighborhood called Little Hollywood.

The Artist In Residence Program at SF Recycling & Disposal, Inc. is an innovative program that inspires and educates people about recycling by providing local artists with access to materials, a work space, and other resources at our Solid Waste Transfer and Recycling Center.

Since 1990, artists have worked in a large, well-equipped studio next to the Transfer Station west of Highway 101 near Monster Park in San Francisco. The Transfer Station is located within a 44-acre property that includes several recycling facilities.

If chosen for one of the coveted artist in residence positions, you would have 24 access to all materials there. Art is created from what would have been sent with the rest of San Francisco's trash to landfills across the Bay or recycling plants across the nation. Personally, I would love to have a fence made entirely out of old bicycle rims. How wonderful!
