Glass House tickets for 2010 on sale

February 12, 2010

Tickets for the 2010 Glass House tour season, which runs May through November, are now on sale at its website and by phone. In addition to its usual tour packages–standard, extended, Modern Friends, Private and Group tours–the Glass House is launching a new way to experience Philip Johnson’s Modern homestead. Called the “Twilight Tour,” visitors will have the opportunity to tour the Glass House site during the evening with seasonal lighting effects. At certain times of the year when the tour coincides with nightfall, visitors will have the rare opportunity to view the Glass House with lighting designed by Richard Kelly, considered one of the pioneers of architectural lighting design. If only May weren’t so far off.
