The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street is the late conceptual artist’s 1886 Italianate-style home and site-specific artwork, widely considered the centerpiece of Ireland’s career and a landmark of American art.

 

Construction Update Week #15
The 500 Capp Street Foundation has a lot to be thankful for this year. After six years of planning and development, the Foundation is moving closer to re-opening 500 Capp Street to the public, fully-restored and with a dynamic calendar of public programming and events. This would not be possible without our incredible team: Jensen Architects, Oliver & Company and Architectural Resources Group. We are thankful for their diligent work, their sensitivity to the project, and their dedication to the house.
Construction Update Week #14
Even with the rainy weather over the past couple of days, our team has been working at full force to install the first panels of waterproofing and moving on to the next phase of construction: The pouring of concrete for the new foundation. This phase holds a lot of significance. Not only does it signify the progression of the project, but also the symbolic nature of concrete as it was a vital material for David Ireland. 
Construction Update Week #13
Excavation continues at 500 Capp Street, with concrete being poured early next week. As the construction work continues at a steady pace at 500 Capp Street, at the offices of Foundation we are busy working on managing not only the house but also a large collection of artwork. As we continue to finalize programming for the re-opening of 500 Capp Street, we look to not only develop programming within the walls of the home, but to also share and explore David’s work in other spaces and contexts.
