09/27: 500 Capp Street Private Tour: The David Ireland House


David Ireland, who died in 2009 at age 78, was a Bay Area pioneer in the use of wet concrete as paint and broken furniture as sculpture. His large pieces - bleached water buffalo bones behind glass - are in the collections of modern art museums from San Francisco to New York. But his most ambitious creation was his two-story home/open studio/sculpture in progress at the southwest corner of Capp and 20th streets, in the Mission.
