Scott Kildall

The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco will host an exhibition and reception for current artists-in-residence Scott Kildall, Niki Ulehla, and Alex Nichols on Friday, May 20th, from 5-9pm and Saturday, May 21, from 1-5pm. This exhibition will be the culmination of four months of work by the artists who have scavenged materials from the dump to make art and promote recycling and reuse.

Scott Kildall, 2049: Kildall assumes the role of a prospector from the future who excavates landfills to build inventions that aid in his survival. Niki Ulehla, The Inferno: An interpretation of Dante’s Inferno told through handmade marionettes. Alex Nichols, Transfer Station: Nichols has created sculptural works as “physical poetry” through the reappropriation of discarded items.

The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco is a one-of-a-kind program started in 1990 to encourage people to conserve natural resources and instill a greater appreciation for the environment and art in children and adults. Artists work for four months in studio space on site, use materials recovered from the Public Disposal and Recycling Area, and speak to students and the general public. Over eighty professional Bay Area artists have completed residencies, and applications are accepted annually in August.
