Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: The David Ireland House
Join us for a virtual road trip across the United States to explore unique and wholly original historic artist homes and studios. Traveling from Idaho to New York, we'll discover the environments, architecture, and private landscapes of six different artists, as well as the spaces that supported their art-making practices. This six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of American artworks. Fueled by the James Castle House and the Historic Artists' Homes & Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Traveling from Boise, Idaho to San Francisco, California, the second stop of this six-part virtual road trip, we'll explore the late, pioneering conceptual artist, David Ireland. Adventuring into Ireland's house, we'll explore the nearly 34-year-long project that both inspired and later became known as Ireland's most significant work of art: 500 Capp Street. We'll tour the present-day site, revealing Ireland's artistic philosophy, and discover the exhibitions and programs that celebrate David Ireland's legacy today.

The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street in San Francisco is the historic home turned work of art created by the late, pioneering conceptual artist David Ireland (1930-2009).
