Reception for Artists in Residence at the San Francisco Dump. Re(F)use by Barbara Holmes and Tell Me Your Story by Casey Logan Re(F)use and Tell Me Your Story is the culmination of a four-month residency in which artists Barbara Holmes and Casey Logan made art from San Francisco’s discards. The exhibition features two separate bodies of 3-dimensional work that was inspired by and composed of salvaged materials from the public disposal area at SF Recycling & Disposal, Inc., a subsidiary of Norcal Waste Systems.
The artist-in-residence program at San Francisco's dump is a one of a kind program started in 1990 to encourage people to conserve natural resources and instill in children and adults an increased appreciation for the environment as well as art. Over 65 professional Bay Area artists have completed residencies. Applications are accepted annually (in August) from professional artists from the Bay Area.
Admission is free and open to the public. Wheel-chair accessible.
