A unique and exciting art program called GLEAN (meaning “to gather, collect bit by bit, or pick over in search of relevant material”) is seeking applicants for our 2012 program. The program is a partnership between crackedpots, Recology and Metro with primary goal of helping educate our region about excessive waste generation and consumption.
It’s an exciting opportunity for artists to have full access for six months to materials discarded at Metro Central transfer station (where waste goes before being sent to the landfill). In addition to gleaning privileges, selected artists each receive a $2,000 stipend and 80% commission on art sales generated from a public exhibition scheduled for September 2012.
Full, detailed information, including the Application and Call to Artists can be found at www.crackedpots.org. The deadline for Applications is January 31, 2012.
