The Brant Foundation Art Study Center is hosting a special free Father’s Day event for children this Sunday. Youngsters will be welcome to view one of Jonathan Horowitz’s installations, which includes replicas of 42 presidential portraits. Taking inspiration from this installation, children will be invited to the polo tent to create portraits of their fathers or male role models. All children must be accompanied by a parent or an adult.

The club will feature the continuation of the United States Polo Association-sanctioned 20-goal Monty Waterbury Cup tournament. The gates open at 1:00 pm, with the match between the Beluga and Airstream polo teams starting at 3 p.m.

This Sunday’s match will also mark the first day of the LOOK VIP event, featuring passed hors d’oeuvres and Champagne, an open bar, a luncheon buffet by OnTheMarc caterers, dining and lounge seating, a photo op by Samsung and even private VIP restrooms. Tickets can be purchased at http://lookatgreenwichpolo.com/tickets-1/.

Or you can rough it picnic-style and with a variety of food vendors.

Polo matches take place Sundays at 1 Hurlingham Drive through July 17 (no match July 3) and Aug. 28 – Sept. 11. Tickets are $500-$600 for VIP private cabanas (seat 8), $300 for box seats (4), $60 per car for grandstand seating and $40 per car for lawn seating.
