The latest gift to travelers from the SFO MUSEUM at San Francisco International Airport features work from 45 of the more than 100 artists who have participated in the Artist-in-Residence Program at Recology San Francisco.

The program, started by visionary artist and activist Jo Hanson in 1990, gives artists a stipend, studio space and scavenge rights to a Public Disposal and Recycling Area.

Art of Recology shows off the wonderful work they created with some junk and a lot of imagination. Look for it in Terminal 3, Boarding Area F at San Francisco International Airport through October 27, 2013.
