MFA AC+D Student Brittany Rudolf Chosen for GLEAN Residency

March 6, 2018

Brittany Rudolf (MFA AC+D '19) has been chosen for inclusion in the GLEAN Residency. GLEAN is a juried art program that seeks to inspire people to think about their consumption habits, the waste they generate, and the resources they throw away by tapping into the creativity of artists from the Portland metro region. The program dedicates one residency position for a student currently enrolled in an art program at a local college or university. 

Five GLEAN artists will be given access to the Metro Central transfer station (“the dump”) for five months to glean materials to make art. The program culminates in a formal exhibition in the fall. Artists will be paid a $2,000 stipend and receive 80% commission from the sale of their art at the exhibition.

GLEAN is a partnership between Recology, an employee-owned integrated resource recovery and recycling company; Metro, the regional government that manages the Portland area’s garbage and recycling system; and crackedpots, an environmental arts non-profit.
