Our Mission

The mission of The 500 Capp Street Foundation is to honor David Ireland’s legacy by allowing visitors the opportunity to experience this masterpiece and immerse themselves in a 360-degree portrait of one of the West Coast’s most important practitioners of conceptual and installation art. In the spirit of Ireland—who actively curated the house and frequently opened it to visitors—the Foundation conducts artist-led public tours, presents a dynamic program of exhibitions and public events, maintains a permanent archive of the artist’s extant body of work, and hosts visiting artists and curators from around the world.
