The Artist in Residence (AIR) Program at Recology San Francisco is a unique art and education program that provides Bay Area artists with access to discarded materials. During their residencies, artists have scavenging privileges and 24-hour access to the company’s well-equipped art studio. 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.

Robert Bradford, an artist in his spare time, creates large sculptures from old toys.

Leo Sewell, a junk sculptor, uses unwanted, thrown-away pieces to create sculptures of all sizes. His sculptures are composed of recognizable objects of plastic, metal and wood.
