Glass House Partnership with New Canaan High School Students + Faculty

The cultivation of young talent is central to the mission of The Philip Johnson Glass House.

The collaboration between the Glass House and New Canaan High School (NCHS) began shortly after the Glass House opened to the public. Photography, documentary film and journalism students, with the support of their teachers, began recording oral histories of the architects, craftsmen and homeowners who created New Canaan’s remarkable heritage of modernist residential architecture.

Additionally numerous photography projects using the Glass House site as inspiration have been woven into the art curriculum at New Canaan High School. Several of these images (including the work of Dylan Neuhaus) have become commissioned products for the Glass House Design Store, sharing this work with thousands of visitors each year.  Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of items using images from the students’ work will be directed to fund this ongoing partnership.

July / August Message From the Director, Wildlife at the Glass House + New Programs!

July 29, 2011

I fear I caused some serious upset on my early morning walk at the Glass House today.

First, the turkeys were quite put out, even though they were mostly on the shortcut and I was on the main path.  We had a bit of a stand-off as they considered my level of threat.  I finally got a low code, so they just lumbered off the gravel to the grass, even though I wasn’t going that way.
