The Summer Party
On June 11th from 12 noon to 4:00 PM, celebrate the start of the season by joining the Glass House as we host our annual Summer Party. With generous support by Athena Art Finance and additional support from William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, the event features a festive picnic by Schoolhouse at Cannondale in Wilton, CT. Enjoy sound by Chez Conversations and music by DJ Mia Moretti while trying your hand at classic lawn games like chess and ping-pong. Stop by the Design Within Reach photo booth to capture the moment or lounge on one of their chaise lounges. If you’re more leisure-minded, enjoy a glass of Taittinger champagne and experience the ongoing permanent Contemporary art collections on view along with 2016 exhibitions, Yayoi Kusama: Narcissus Garden and Robert Rauschenberg: Spreads and Related Works, or enjoy the chance to roam freely across the pastoral 49-acre grounds.
If you can’t wait until June 11th to join in on all the fun, on May 27th, start bidding on the Glass House’s silent auction powered by Paddle 8, to bid on beautiful works by Richard Serra, Bruce Nauman, Josef Albers, Dustin Yellin and KAWS along with luxury trip packages and many more unique items.
The Summer Party will also see the launch of the 2016 Summer Party artist, Vik Muniz’s limited edition work, The Glass House, after Robin Hill, created in chocolate syrup which is included with VIP Friend level tickets at $7,500 and Platinum Table Captain at $20,000.
