Weird Homes Tour x Atlas Obscura: The Gregangelo Museum
August 18, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Over the course of 4 decades, acclaimed artist and San Francisco native, Gregangelo, has transformed what was once an ordinary home into the one-of-a-kind artistic spectacle. With Gregangelo serving as our Ringmaster, visitors explore up to 36 evocative realms of his space inspired by themes of history, humanity, and the cosmos. In this online experience, we’ll virtually walk through his incredible space and its elaborately themed rooms with interactive from our host performances throughout.
Our host, Gregangelo, is a whirling dervish, artistic director, Ringmaster of Velocity Circus, and runs the Gregangelo Museum, noted as one of the world’s weirdest homes, now a full-on public immersive experience. After an hour in his home, we’ll learn to find our place in the world, cherish our memories, and connect through shared insights that range from simple, profound, to simply profound.
Our partners at Weird Homes Tour offer a series of annual self-paced, self-driving tours that allow you to visit the inside of homes, and meet collectors of oddities, rare art collectors, performance artists, painters, sculptors and architects in cities all across the USA. As you browse their 100+ homes you will see that they reject cookie cutter design and architecture and embrace the wonderfulness of weird.
