How can I visit the Foundation? Are you taking reservations for tours of Louise Bourgeois's home and studio?

Louise Bourgeois's historic home is currently undergoing conservation, and is not yet accessible to the general public. Guided tours will eventually be scheduled with advance reservation through our website. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. Until then, we are not taking reservations for individual tours, nor do we have a mailing list. Please check back for periodic updates to our schedule. 
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Easton Foundation's offices are open by appointment only.

The Louise Bourgeois Archive and study room will be available to curators and scholars by advance invitation and appointment, and on a case-by-case basis, to those researching Louise Bourgeois's work and related themes. We will not accomodate walk-in visitors. For further information on how to request a visit, contact info@theeastonfoundation.org. Include your research topic, and any specific questions, so that we can assess how best you might utilize the Archive. Be prepared to schedule well in advance.

Please note that the cataloguing of the Archive is an ongoing project, and not all papers will be accessible at all times.
