The Recology Artist in Residence (AIR) Program is pleased to announce in collaboration with Saddleback College the second panel in our series, RECOLOGY AIR CONNECTS, focused on rotating themes that connect artists and ideas.

Titled after Saddleback College’s upcoming virtual exhibition of work made at Recology curated by former AIR artist, Barbara Holmes, the panel “Recalled to Nature” brings together three vibrant voices from the Bay Area: Mark Baugh-Sasaki, Alicia Escott, and Minoosh Zomorodinia. In conversation with our moderators, Barbara Holmes and Victor Yañez-Lazcano, the artists will discuss how they use art to explore the intersection of our social, political, and historical relationships to nature.


This event will also stream live on our YouTube Channel

Art  |  Sustainability  |  Community – Recology Student Artist Exhibition and Panel

At the beginning of this year, we celebrated the Recology Artist in Residence Program’s 30-year anniversary at Arc Gallery. The exhibition included work from past artists and a dedication to our founder Jo Hanson. We simultaneously installed work from our student artists in our Environmental Learning Center for an exhibition that was planned for May 2020​, which due to shelter-in-place mandates, was never seen by the public. 

To celebrate the Recology Artist in Residence Program’s student artists, we released a self-guided virtual tour of the student exhibition on October 6, and throughout the month of October, we will feature videos that highlight a select number of student artists. The celebration will culminate in the Art/Community/Sustainability Student Alum Panel, facilitated by former AIR artist, Victor Yañez-Lazcano, in conversation with Hannah Beatrice Quinn, Jinmei Chi, Ricki Dwyer, and Shushan Tesfuzigta on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 5:30 pm.
