Sharon Spain serves as curator for Recology San Francisco’s Artist in Residence Program. The Program’s mission is to educate the public about recycling and resource conservation by enabling artists to make art “at the dump,” providing tours to students and adults, and programming off-site exhibitions. Before coming to Recology, Spain was the associate director of the Asian American Art Project at Stanford University, the managing editor of Asian American Art: A History, 1850-1970 (Stanford University Press, 2008), and a contributor to the de Young Museum catalog, Asian/American/Modern Art (2008). She has worked for the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery and San Francisco State University Fine Arts Gallery.
