The new Glass House website features expanded content and streaming media related to architecture, art, conservation, special exhibitions, and works from the permanent collection. The website redesign incorporates new navigational tools including an interactive map and 360° tours of many areas of the 49-acre historic site. It was designed and developed in concert with New York-based firms For Office Use Only and CHIPS. This project was supported by the Interpretation and Education Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, an endowed fund made possible by a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Highlights from the Sculpture Gallery
Displayed in the building known as Da Monsta, designed by Philip Johnson in 1995 as a visitor center and now a contemporary art gallery, Highlights from the Sculpture Gallery includes sculptures by artists John Chamberlain and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as the debut of a sculpture, Untitled (Nine Fiberglass Sleeves) (1967), by Robert Morris never before publicly displayed at the Glass House. This exhibition supports the Sculpture Gallery Restoration Project, also taking place in 2015.
Night Sounds #6, Bill Orcutt, Sunday, June 28, 3-5:30 p.m.
Night Sounds is a performance series that parallels the seven part sculpture-in-residence program Night (1947-2015), guest curated by Jordan Stein. Night Sounds #6 will feature Bill Orcutt. Orcutt’s sound is a stuttered reimagining of blues guitar. One can hear familiar Southern folk scales between Orcutt’s jagged solo acoustic phrases, pulling and pushing melodies into unresolved fragments that eventually come unmoored in vast and satisfying note-torrents. Night Sounds #6 is generously supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
