Featured Work for March
GLEAN: Make Art-Not Landfill
Cannibals artist, Greg Hanson, was recently accepted into the GLEAN program (along with four other local artists). GLEAN is in partnership with Recology, a company that manages a variety of resource recovery facilities. The artists chosen for this six month program are given daily access to the Metro Central transfer station to glean materials and treasures to use to create art. Each artist is paid a stipend, and is required to create a minimum of ten pieces of art to be sold during an exhibition in September. Jen Fuller was Cannibals recipient of this grant last year.
