CALL FOR ARTISTS: Recology King County’s 2024 Artist in Residence Program is seeking Artists.

The call opened on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2024, and the deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 29, 2024.

The Recology King County Artist in Residence Program (Recology KC AIR) is a unique opportunity for King County artists to expand their existing studio practice by working with reusable resources to create a new and impactful body of work. Modeled after the Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco, Recology KC AIR encourages the conservation of natural resources while inspiring artists to think about habits of consumption, waste, disposal, and sustainability.

Recology KC AIR is a juried program that selects two King County artists for a four-month residency, providing artists with a $1300 monthly stipend, administrative support, studio visits and access to the Recology recovery facility in South Seattle, Recology Stores, and the City of Seattle’s North Transfer Station. On occasion, artists will have the opportunity to speak to school classes and adult tour groups about their experience of working with recycled materials.

At the conclusion of each residency, Recology KC hosts a public exhibition and artist talk at Mutuus Studio in conjunction with the Georgetown Art Attack. Artists contribute one piece of art made during the residency to Recology KC AIR’s permanent collection and the work continues to be exhibited in off-site exhibitions that serve to promote the artists, recycling, and reuse.
