The Santa Cruz Recycled Art Program (SCRAP) will offer 4-7 selected artists four months of
access (mid-July to mid-November) to the waste stream at the City’s Resource Recovery Facility
(RRF) which is located at 605 Dimeo Ln, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, in order to make art from
gleaned, recycled materials.

Two weeks at the end of November will be used to hone the final pieces to polished completion
prior to exhibition (writing artist statements, wiring wall works for hanging, procuring
appropriate pedestals and other display equipment, photographing work- for promotional
materials -our staff.)

Artists will have access to the waste stream during normal Resource Recovery Facility hours,
which are Monday through Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Artists may glean a variety of materials ranging from disposed household items (e.g. BBQs, furniture, fabric, carpet, fixtures) to industrial and commercial waste (e.g. concrete, metal, tires, plastics, wood) and much more. Artists may need to transport materials from the RRF. There will be some basic storage available onsite and a way to log requests if you need assistance or are looking for something specific – and want help from RRF staff.

Artist must MUST be available for meetings with the curator TBD on two occasions over the
course of their residency period to access progress and finalize display preparations.

Opening Reception: The final exhibition will take place at the R.Blitzer Gallery on Friday, December 6, 2019 located at 2801 Mission St Santa Cruz – the former Wrigley Building.

11:30AM at the RRF - 605 Dimeo Ln, Santa Cruz, CA 95060. This will be an opportunity for
artists to see what is available to glean and to ask questions about the program.
