About this event

This one-hour long tour explores the life and work of James Castle. Hosted by James Castle House staff, visitors gain insight into the history of Castle's life and explore original artworks and artifacts that informed his art-making practice.

To help ensure physical distancing and a safe, comfortable experience, we are offering admission in the house with limited capacity.

Face masks are required in City of Boise facilities and applies to all visitors and staff at the James Castle House. Following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and in light of increased community spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and low vaccination rates in Ada County, the City of Boise has reinstated a face covering requirement at all indoor city facilities as of July 28, 2021. This change applies to everyone regardless of their vaccination status. We thank you for doing your part in keeping our community healthy.
