Thank you for your generous support of The Glass House over the past few seasons. In the last year, we continued to engage a local and global audience through exciting online programs and exhibitions. This fall,Robert Stadler: Playdateactivated multiple locations including the Glass House, Sculpture Gallery, Da Monsta, and the landscape. The scope of David Hartt’sA Colored Gardenexpanded to include a series of still-life paintings by Charles Ethan Porter, a film by Hartt, and an on-site performance with MacArthur Award-winning cellist Tomeka Reid.
Glass House programsand events are a gathering place for creative and influential minds offering leaders in their fields the chance to discuss current and pressing issues such as sustainability, preservation, and social justice through the lens of art and design. After several years absence, we returned to an in-person format for our signature fundraiser, theSummer Party. The gala debuted a groundbreaking edition byMickalene Thomas, and our annual benefit auction featured over 100 works by artists from around the world.
Your support this year enabled us to maintain the Studio and Da Monsta, and to undertake critical landscape conservation of our 49-acre site. Preservation is key to our mission. In 2023, we are excited to share that we will kick off Phase 1 of theBrick House restoration. We are still raising funds to complete Phase II and III of the project. But we are closer than ever! This will be our most significant preservation project to date.
With your support, we have been able to accomplish a lot, but there is much more to do, including conservation of our permanent collection.Please help us continue our crucial work by making a fullytax-deductible giftorjoin us as a Membertoday!
