Glass House Tour and Reception

Join us for a private guided visit to the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan. The tour will explore the sublime, bucolic campus of the Johnson estate and include, of course the Glass House, the Painting Gallery, the Sculpture Gallery and “da Monsta”, Johnson’s final work on the estate. In addition, experience the currently installed, site specific artwork, “the Veil” by Fujiko Nakaya.

For more information on the Glass House go to   http://theglasshouse.org/

Following the visit, PAAFC will host a short reception with refreshments at the Gores Pavilion in the nearby Irwin Park. Landis Gores, a Princeton graduate, went on to become one of the “Harvard Five” and following early collaboration with Philip Johnson, established his practice in New Canaan.

Glass House and Gores Pavilion   $50

Glass House only                             $38.50

Three CT alumni organizations share Alumni Council Award!

The three organizations (PAAFC, PAAEC and PACC) have been working together for the past few years. Our mutual support was noticed outside of Connecticut. At the 2011 Reunions in May, the three Connecticut alumni organizations were awarded the Committee on Regional Associations Award for Innovation. The Alumni Council cited the three associations “for institutionalizing the practice of ongoing collaboration with neighboring regional associations to engage all Princeton alumni living in the state of Connecticut.”
