NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The Glass House in New Canaan will be celebrating the start of the summer season with its annual Summer Party on June 13, from noon to 4 p.m.

Space is limited, so buy your tickets now.

Supported by Swarovski, the event features a festive picnic by Campagna, the restaurant of The Bedford Post Inn.

Enjoy a performance by Lucky Dragons and listen to DJs Timo + Alan play the perfect blend of summer hits while trying your hand at classic lawn games such as croquet and ping-pong.

Stop by the Design Within Reach photo booth to capture the moment or lounge on one of their chaise lounges.

If you are more leisure-minded, enjoy a glass of Taittinger champagne and explore the early paintings and graphic design work of Elaine Lustig Cohen in the Painting Gallery, or Highlights from the Sculpture Gallery, featuring Robert Morris' "Untitled (Nine Fiberglass Sleeves)," 1967, on view to the public for the first time in Da Monsta.

The Summer Party will also see the launch of our first sculptural edition by Liam Gillick, Recessed Edition Stream, available with the purchase of a $5,000 VIP Friend ticket or table.

Beginning on May 29, residents can also visit The Glass House's Silent auction, powered by Paddle 8, to bid on works by Robert Indiana, Kehinde Wiley, John Chamberlain, Herb Ritts, and Jeff Koons along with luxury trip packages and many more unique items.

The Summer Party is sponsored by Art in America and Moffly Media with special thanks to Aesop, Altamarea Group, BFA.com, Callari Auto Group, New Canaan Olive Oil, Juliska, Rockwell Art & Framing, Design Within Reach, Espresso Neat, Govino, Sperry Tents, and VOSS.
