David Ireland – 1930-2009

D.I. 1930-2009.

An anonymous tipster has informed us that David Ireland, famous for his conceptual art and turning his former residence at 500 Capp St. into a showplace for his work, has passed away: “Yesterday, I was on my way to vote, when I noticed a bouquet of flowers outside the house, with a note that read ‘D.I. 1930-2009.'”

For the record, there are no news sources corroborating the tip; however, his wikipedia entry has been updated with the news.
