The Glass House celebrated the annual Summer Party and the 70th Anniversary on Saturday, June 8th, 2019. Guests were captivated by legendary high wire artist Philippe Petit as he activated the space between the Glass House and the landscape with his special "Aerial surprise." Petit galvanized the audience to sing "Happy Birthday" to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Glass House built in 1949.
The Summer Party was made possible by the generous support from Chelsfield, Hunter Douglas, and SRI Fine Art Services. The Summer Party featured a festive farm-to-table picnic by South End, guests sipped rosé by Whispering Angel and enjoyed lawn games including ping-pong and chess. Energizing performances by the Marching Cobras from Harlem got the guests in the summer mood for fun. A special auction of contemporary art, luxury items, and experiences was powered by Paddle8 and raised a significant portion of the proceeds.
