Capp Street Project
Founded in San Francisco in 1983 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 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. Capp Street Project became part of the Wattis Institute in 1998.

A list of Capp Street Artists (1984–present) is available here.

The Capp Street Project Archive is housed in the Meyer Library on the Oakland campus of California College of the Arts. Click here to access it online.

The archive documents the process, intention, and realization of installations and temporary projects sponsored by Capp Street Project since 1983. Under the auspices of the college's libraries, the archive preserves and organizes materials relating to the projects and makes these materials available for study and research. Through the archive's website, present-day audiences may view projects as they once existed, learn about the artists who created them, and experience these works anew.
