About the Exhibitions

Exhibitions at The David Ireland House highlight changing selections of Ireland’s work from our extensive 3,000-piece collection of art and archival materials.

On site exhibitions take place in two main quarters; the house and the garage. The house is comprised of two main floors of Ireland’s living quarters including the Accordion Shop, a space Ireland used for his studio. The garage is a white-walled space located where Ireland’s garage once stood.

The House presents exhibitions and educational programs celebrating Ireland’s artistic legacy, and hosts collaborative events to strengthen San Francisco’s cultural community—bringing together artists, scholars, teachers, students, and the public—as Ireland’s home did during his lifetime.
