The archive documents the process, intention, and realization of installations and temporary projects sponsored by Capp Street
Project since 1983. Founded by Ann Hatch, Capp Street Project was the first visual arts residency in the United States dedicated
solely to the creation and presentation of new art installations. The organization took its name from the house at 65 Capp
Street, San Francisco, designed by the artist David Ireland. Since its inception, Capp Street Project has given more than
100 local, national, and international artists the opportunity to create new work through its residency and public exhibition
programs. Its mission is to provide opportunities for contemporary artists working in diverse media to create and present
site-related installations in the San Francisco Bay Area; to encourage experimentation in the arts; to educate and promote
public involvement in the arts; and to contribute to the evolution of new ideas in contemporary art.
