The Summer Party

Please join us on Saturday, June 9th from 12:00-4:00pm as we celebrate the start of the season with our annual Summer Party fundraising event. With generous support from Janice Parker Landscape Architects and logistical support provided by SRI Fine Art Services, the Summer Party features a farm-to-table picnic by South End, rosé by Whispering Angel, lawn games, music, and a highly curated auction powered by Paddle8Tesla will provide transportation between the parking area and the Glass House. Guests will also have the exclusive opportunity to view a Tesla Model X on display during the event.

This year guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a new exhibition in the Painting Gallery of work from the Glass House permanent collection, some of which has not before been shown to the public. Guests will also have the opportunity to preview a new virtual reality experience that simulates the restored interior of the Brick House, which remains closed and requires much needed restoration.

If you can’t wait until June 9th to join in on all the fun, start bidding on the Summer Party benefit auction, powered by Paddle8, on Friday, May 25th at 12:00pm, including works by Andrea Zittel, Dustin Yellin, Lawrence Weiner, Lindsey Adelman, The Haas Brothers, Rita Ackerman, luxury trip packages and many more unique art and design items.

This year’s Summer Party artist, Jenny Holzer, will create a special editioned multiple in support of the Glass House. Ticket purchasers at the VIP Friend level and Platinum Table level will receive an edition as part of their donation. For details or to reserve one from this very small edition please contact Isabel Richards at irichards@theglasshouse.org or 203.978.3002.
