GLEAN is accepting applications for 2018 from artists residing in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties.

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.

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.
