Beginning in mid-August the Recology Artist in Residence Program will welcome three visiting artists from Haiti: Claudel Casseus, Romel Jean Pierre, and Racine Polycarpe.
Sponsored by Project Hope Art, this mini-residency will enable the artists to use the student artist studio and scavenge for materials to make their art. The artists will work on-site for approximately one month and exhibit finished and in-process artwork at the Environmental Learning Center at 401 Tunnel Avenue during our September exhibition.
The artists belong to Atis-Rezistans, an artist collective in Port-au-Prince whose members use recycled materials to create assemblage art. Please join us for the exhibition:
Friday, September 20, 2013, 5 – 9 pm
Saturday, September 21, 2013, 1- 3 pm
Tuesday, September 24, 5 – 7pm, with an artist panel discussion from 7pm – 8pm
The exhibition will be held at our studio located at 503 Tunnel Avenue in San Francisco, and at the Environmental Learning Center at 401 Tunnel Avenue. The artist talk will take place at the Environmental Learning Center. See below for directions.
