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 The 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 croquet and ping-pong. Stop by the Design Within Reach photo booth to capture the moment or lounge on one of their Eos Lounge Chairs. If you’re more leisure-minded, enjoy a glass of Taittinger champagne and experience our current 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 Summer Party silent auction, powered by Paddle 8, including 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.
