Since its founding 20 years ago, the Recology San Francisco Artist in Residence Program has supported more than one hundred professional and student artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has been the subject of national and international press. Each year more than 5,000 children and adults visit art exhibitions and attend educational tours that allow artists to interact with the public while teaching important lessons about recycling and reuse. AIR is an award-winning program that was established in 1990. The program hosts professional, full-time artists for four months and provides six artists per year with a stipend, exhibition space, and access to materials that have been thrown away. AIR was honored with the Acterra 2009 Business Environmental Award for its leadership in Environmental & Sustainability Education.
