The artist-in-residence program is a unique art and education opportunity that provides local artists with materials, a stipend, a studio space, and an exhibition at the end of their residency. "Materials provided" basically means permission to scavenge the discarded items that come through the Recycling Center. The results are truly inspiring, and often useful. Check the website to see when the next exhibit will be. The facility is also home to a three-acre sculpture garden with work made entirely of recycled "waste".
