The home of conceptual artist David Ireland at the corner of Capp and 20th streets has been booked solid since its opening night. But for one special day, on Sunday March 20th, the former home and now museum will be open from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on a pay-what-you-wish basis.

From cement sundaes to animal skulls to quirky altered furniture, visitors can view the exhibits at their own pace, first come, first served – though the last admittance will be at 4:30 p.m. Mission Local got a sneak peek a few days before the opening and also visited that first night to offer you a glimpse into the exhibit that is now on view.

The David Ireland House’s next exhibition, The Sound of Blue, will open April 8, 2016.
