HTG Virtual Tour of The Glass House
October 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join HTG Investment Advisors for a virtual tour of The Glass House with The Glass House Chief Curator and Creative Director Hilary Lewis.
Following his graduation from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design in 1943, Philip Johnson designed some of America’s greatest modern architectural landmarks. Most notable is his private residence, The Glass House, a 49-acre property in New Canaan, Connecticut. The site comprises fourteen structures and features a permanent collection of 20th-century painting and sculpture.
Johnson was a singular tastemaker, influencing architecture, art and design during the second-half of the twentieth century. He referred to the Glass House as his “fifty-year diary.”
Join us for a virtual tour that will include The Glass House and its surrounding landscape, as well as anecdotes of Johnson’s personal life that are sure to educate and entertain.
