      SF Recycling & Disposal’s Art Studio located at 503 Tunnel Ave. San Francisco, CA 94134

      SF Recycling & Disposal, Inc. will hold a two day art exhibition and reception for local artists Bill Basquin and Jane Kim. Both artists will exhibit a body of work created during their four-month art residency at San Francisco’s city dump.

      In conjunction with this event, there will be a exhibition featurting work by San Francisco State University student artist Diane Glazman, on display in the Environmental Learning Center located at 401 Tunnel Ave. Admission is free and open to the public, all ages welcome, wheel chair accessible.


      Bill Basquin, The Way of all Flesh

      Bill Basquin, a photographer and filmmaker, is knee-deep in dirt and decomposition and he invites you to join him; he promises it’ll be a lot more fun than it sounds. In searching for the fusion between urban and rural in his own life, Basquin’s residency at the Dump seems a natural; his work documents the decaying aspects of foodstuffs --molding oranges and rotting avocado skins conjure up alchemical relationships between beauty and function, hope and activism, art and agriculture.

      Jane Kim, Walls Inlaid

      Painter and mixed media artist Jane Kim explores the sociological relevance of walls by using a variety of construction materials collected at the Public Disposal Area including lumber, brick, plywood, sheetrock and paint. She endeavors to bridge the discord brought through environmental waste by redefining the walls that divide us culturally and the decorative elements that can bring us together.

      The artist-in-residence program at San Francisco’s dump is a one-of-a-kind program started in 1990 to encourage people to conserve natural resources and instill in children and adults an increased appreciation for the environment as well as art. Over 75 professional Bay Area artists have completed residencies. Applications are accepted annually (during the summer months) from professional artists from the Bay Area.

      As a writer and artist, Diane Glazman is concerned with the creation of identity through the stories we tell about ourselves and our world. Working with found objects and text, Diane’s work calls attention to the ways we create those stories and what they say about us.
