SATURDAY JUNE 25th
ARTIST TALK 6PM – Moderated by Deborah Munk, Director of the Artist in Residence Program (Recology)
OPENING RECEPTION 7-10PM
The Loft at Liz’s annual assemblage show, Diverted Destruction, the 9th edition, will feature work by five artists who have participated in the Recology San Francisco Artist in Residence (AIR) Program. For the past 26 years, the Recology AIR program has provided artists with studio space at San Francisco’s transfer station and access to materials in the public dump. The Program supports Bay Area artists, while also serving as the cornerstone of an education program that encourages children and adults to think about their consumption practices and how reuse and recycling helps protect the environment. Since acquiring a facility in Sun Valley, Recology has been working to make significant improvements to the site and intends to create space for a Los Angeles Artist in Residence Program there in the future.
Exhibiting artists are Kristin Cammermeyer, Mark Faigenbaum, Jeff Hantman, Barbara Holmes, and Karrie Hovey.
About the Recology AIR Program
The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco was 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 120 professional Bay Area artists have completed residencies. Applications are accepted annually, June through August. www.recologysf.com/air
