“The Summer Party” is set for June 14 and will fill the grounds of The Glass House, the historic New Canaan site and longtime home of architect Philip Johnson (1906-2005).
From noon to 4 p.m., guests are invited to join in a festive picnic lunch by Elm with Champagne by Taittinger, lawn games, music and a silent auction. Participants will also have the chance to experience the exhibit “Fujiko Nakaya: Veil” as well as the entire 49-acre campus. The event is being presented with support from Swarovski. Attire is “summer chic.” Tickets start at $500.
Funds raised will benefit The Philip Johnson Glass House, a National Trust Historic Site that was completed in 1949.
