This weekend we celebrated our annual Summer Party on Saturday, June 9th, 2018. The Summer Party was made possible by the generous support from Houlihan Lawrence, The Howard Hughes Corporation/Seaport District NYC, Janice Parker Landscape Architects + SRI Fine Art Services.
The Summer Party featured a festive farm-to-table picnic by South End, rosé by Whispering Angel, lawn games including ping-pong and chess, the music of Philip Glass and John Cage performed by Brooklyn Rider, and a special auction of contemporary art, luxury items, and experiences powered by Paddle8. Tesla provided transportation between the parking area and the Glass House. Guests had the exclusive opportunity to view a Tesla Model X on display during the event. This year’s Summer Party artist, Jenny Holzer, created two limited edition mirrors In a Glass House and Certainly sex, in support of the Glass House. Ticket purchasers at the VIP Friend level and Platinum Table level received a single edition as part of their donation.
Guests strolled the 49-acre landscape and enjoyed an exhibition on view in the Painting Gallery, and had the opportunity to preview a virtual reality experience that simulated the restored interior of the Brick House, which remains closed and requires much-needed restoration.
