In partnership with Historic Artists' Homes and Studios, the James Castle House hosted a virtual road trip across the United States to explore six unique historic artist homes and studios during Summer 2021. 

Learn how calendars likely influenced Castle's frequent use of grid structures. Rather than housing numbers, these grids often contained an assortment of images and patterns. 

After three and a half years of researching, documenting, constructing, and preserving the spaces of American artist, James Castle, the doors to his reimagined house opened to share his creative legacy.

Over the course of four days 3,000 visitors from around the nation gathered in Boise, Idaho to learn about American artist, James Castle and his house, which opened to the public in April 2018. Tours, film screenings, and a symposium kicked off this four-day celebration.

This rendering of Christmas carolers is an example of Castle’s color works. This vibrant and cheerful piece appeared in our 2019-2020 exhibition Flip|Side, which paired twelve original artworks and twelve facsimiles, allowing both sides of each piece to be viewed simultaneously.
