Reclaimed: The Art of Recology

Whittemore & Noonan Galleries

This metropolis of junk, otherwise known as “the dump,” is home to one of the most coveted Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programs since 1990. Reclaimed: The Art of Recology presents a fascinating survey of 33 artists who were selected to participate in Recology’s unique Artist-in-Residence program. Armed with safety gear and a shopping cart, artists have scavenging privileges in the Public Reuse and Recycling Area to recycle and reclaim the discarded waste as reimagined art objects. Featuring approximately 50 objects, the artwork in Reclaimed is varied, unusual, yet familiar. The hybrid concoctions are highly creative and mind-blowing in execution and form. This eclectic exhibition of work created from unwanted materials encourages viewers to perceive “trash” in a new light.
