DWR is proud to be the sponsor of Conversations in Context at the Philip Johnson Glass House — continuing the legacy of what has been described as “the longest running salon in America” — established as a gathering of great minds in architecture, art, and design in New Canaan, Connecticut at the invitation of Philip Johnson and David Whitney. When the Glass House opened to the public in 2007, it extended the tradition to an invite-only Conversation series that took place at the property.

Conversations in Context at 5:30PM
2-hour guest-hosted tour and reception
Purchase tickets ($150 each) at PhilipJohnsonGlassHouse.org
Pioneers in the field of architectural color, colorists and artists Donald Kaufman and Taffy Dahl create unique palettes and special pigment formulations based on more than thirty years of research on the equation of color + space + light. Since 1976, Donald Kaufman Color has collaborated with the best and best-known talents in architecture and design to mix site-specific palettes, including for Philip Johnson’s Glass House and New York City apartment. Kaufman’s paintings can be found in the Whitney Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn; Johnson described him as “the rare painter who understands architecture.” The team is devoted to realizing the energy of architecture –“architectural color is nothing less than the medium through which we experience architecture…it can enhance or deplete the harmony and balance of the spaces”–, to illuminating the visions of architects and designers, and to ensuring that clients may recreate the luminosity and expansiveness experienced outdoors.
