RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency) hosts a public event introducing Site to Be Seen: Concepts for and from the Superfund, a project inviting artists and collaborators to envision the varied ecological, artistic, and social potentials of the Superfund site adjacent to RAIR.

The site, a former scrap metal and transformer salvage facility called the Metal Bank, is a once-contaminated and now-remediated eleven-acre parcel of land.

Attendees are invited to walk the pastoral site and pick up free copies of newsprint broadsides featuring twelve commissioned creative proposals for the maintenance, preservation, and remediation of the land. Site respondents include Billy Dufala, Kaitlin Pomerantz, and Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

The event is held entirely outdoors, but masks are strongly encouraged. No RSVP is necessary.
