RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency)

Recycled Artist in Residency (RAIR) is located within the Revolution Recovery waste recycling facility. It offers artists the opportunity to create art from the 450 tons of waste that arrive daily to the “tipping yard”. Revolution Recovery recently acquired a new site, opening the door for RAIR’s expansion. The Collaborative’s conceptual plan proposes a new center with a courtyard workspace, sculpture garden, and “Dinosaur Overlook” connecting RAIR with the Delaware River, future North Delaware Riverfront Greenway bike trail, and Tacony community.
