Have you heard of RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency)? Here is a bit more info about them from their website:

RAIR (Recycled Artist-In-Residency) is a group of dedicated individuals working to connect art and sustainability. We provide artists with salvaged materials and comfortable workspace while increasing awareness about the waste stream.
This project came out of requests from Philadelphia-based artists wanting access to recycled materials at Revolution Recovery, LLC – a construction and demolition recycling facility in Philadelphia. They’ve been informally donating materials to artists for years, and have dreamed of starting a structured program. A group of people started thinking about the potential for establishing a formal residency program at the facility. We’ve been dedicating time and energy into the project for a while now, and believe RAIR is ready to play a key role in creating awareness about art and sustainability in Philadelphia.

PSG charter member Michael Konrad was one of the artists asked to do a Mini Biggie Shortie. 
Take a look at his blog post about RAIR here.

RAIR needs help funding their 2013 artist residency program. Help support RAIR by donating to their Kickstarter campaign. Check it out here: RAIR Kickstarter
