Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Artists, collectors, and art aficionados alike dressed in “summer chic” last weekend to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Philip Johnson‘s Glass House with a summer party in New Canaan, CT.
This year’s silent auction brought in a record $300,000, which will go to support the Glass House site and preservation projects. The auction included work by Richard Barnes, Richard Serra, Crash, and Julia Chiang.
Alongside the gallery featuring art up for auction, attendees were able to play on an interactive, life-size chessboard and ping pong tables. They were also given the opportunity to experience the Glass House’s “Fujiko Nakaya: Veil” fog installation and its newest exhibition, “Six Panels: Al Taylor,” organized by Robert Storr, as well as exploring the premises.
Guests were given a plethora of goodies at the sold-out event beginning with lunch served in individualized picnic baskets, adorned with Swarovski crystals. The VIP gift bags included Ralph Lauren candles, two books from Monacelli Press, and various Aesop products. On top of that, Makerbot designed limited-edition Glass House models and bookmarks as gifts for guests to take home.
