We offer a full calendar of varied events that reconnect alumni to Brown and regularly draw hundreds of participants. We extend warm greetings to all area members of the Brown community including alumni, spouses, current Brown students, parents, prospective applicants and friends of the University.

We have arranged a private group tour of The Glass House in New Canaan, which will last two hours and include The Glass House, the Painting Gallery, the Sculpture Gallery, and Da Monsta, with a three-quarter mile walk over grass and paths with outdoor sculptures. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit the midcentury modern masterpiece that so many of us studied at Brown. 

The Glass House, built between 1949 and 1995 by architect Philip Johnson, is an historic site owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The pastoral 49-acre landscape comprises fourteen structures and features a permanent collection of 20th-century paintings and sculptures, along with temporary exhibitions. As a historic site, The Glass House serves as a catalyst for the preservation and interpretation of modern architecture, landscape, and art, and as a canvas for inspiration and experimentation. 

The site is ADA accessible and tours are run rain or shine. In the event of rain, please bring umbrellas and rain coats. Large bags and backpacks need to be checked at the Visitor Center. Please note we will split into two groups of 13 people departing from the Glass House Visitor Center 20 minutes apart, with a separate tour guide leading each group. Photography is allowed. Enhance your experience at The Glass House with their Digital Guide on Bloomberg Connects.

Date & Time: Saturday, November 11 - First group of 13 leaves at 11:15am, second group of 13 leaves at 11:35am. Tours last 2 hours.  Please check in at the Visitor Center (199 Elm Street) 20 minutes in advance of departure time.

Price: $60 per Person (children must be 10 years or older and are the same price). Limited to the first 26 RSVPs on a first come first serve basis. 

Location: All tours originate from the Visitor Center at 199 Elm Street, New Canaan. Tours are taken to and from the site in a free shuttle from the Visitor Center.

Parking: Parking is not available at the Visitor Center. Please park in a municipal metered lot at 77 Main Street, approximately 5 minutes walk from the Visitor Center. $1 per hour (3 hour maximum) payable by cash or credit card at a parking kiosk. Or pre-purchase an all-day parking pass by contacting the Visitor Center at (203) 594-9884.

Train: As an alternative to driving, you can take Metro-North to the New Canaan train station, which is across the street from the Visitor Center.
