The Art of Recology

Every time I pass through San Francisco, I love viewing all the artwork around the various terminals especially the art wing in the United Airlines terminal. In between the check-in desk to the boarding gates is a long corridor with a wonderful open space dedicated to art work. The revolving art displays include imaginative themes featuring local Bay Area artists. The shows are always impressive and well presented,  so when I’m going through the terminal, I make an effort to come early to the airport to see the latest show.

On my recent trip back to the Bay Area, I was in for a wonderful display of artwork made from recycled materials from the dump. Titled Recology – the colorful displays grabbed me in tracks to spend some time viewing some amazing work from trash found at the dumps.

Here are some highlights of the creative pieces on display at the airport:
