Philippe Petit’s Aerial Surprise

French high wire artist Philippe Petit’s site-specific aerial walk at the Glass House Summer Party

“The Glass House, since its opening 70 years ago (we are the same age), has had many, many visitors: but all used the door to come in!” states Petit. “I wish to change that: I will enter through the sky—and offer as birthday celebration for this iconic building— an AERIAL SURPRISE!”
