In his new documentary, photographer Don Freeman explores the homes designed and lived in by notable American artists, revealing the inventiveness derived from the dialogue between each artist's practice and the construction of their handmade homes. Ranging from the romantic (Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's Olana, framing views of the Catskills to echo his paintings), to the futuristic (Paolo Soleri's silt-casted structure Cosanti growing out of his bell-making experiments in the Arizona desert), to the sublime (George Nakashima's mid-century modern ode to the beauty and versatility of wood), what they all have in common is a fierce spirit of individual expression that deserves deeper examination in this age of architectural standardization.

"Art House reconnects art with its architectural context, a recurrent theme in  the history  of art and architecture.  Don's work reminds us of the origins of art works within the all-encompassing architectural environment, and Art House demonstrates that works  of art are not separate from the place in which they originate, even in our modern world." - Jon Ritter, Ph.D., New York University, Department of Art History

"Recommended! Beautifully photographed and scored... In addition to seeing these artists not as celebrities or icons but as real people, in the spaces where creative ideas were transformed into something else, viewers also get a glimpse where each drew inspiration, found refuge, raised families, and entertained friends."

"Art House is a documentary of art. It is also a work of art."
