Revolution Recovery is a construction and demolition recycling company with the mission to keep material out of landfills. RAIR (Recycled Artist-In-Residency) is a group of dedicated individuals working to connect art and sustainability, providing artists with salvaged materials and comfortable workspace while increasing awareness about the waste stream. Each day, tons of materials arrive via construction dumpsters and trucks.

Artist Lauren Ruth

Come see an Revolution Recovery’s immense warehouse and salvage yard filled to the brim with materials and literally mountains of wood, metal, and many odd trash finds, with thousands of tons of materials. Artists use these materials to construct large art installations that are documented, photographed and deconstructed to go back into the recycling stream. Our tour will be guided by Billy Dufala, artist and co-founder of RAIR.

The tour is free FREE for members, but reservations are necessary.
