A truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, this package offers the winning bidder extraordinary accommodations and an insider’s look at the New York art scene. The important twentieth-century architect Philip Johnson designed some of America’s most notable modern landmarks. First among them is his private residence, The Glass House, located atop a dramatic hill on a rolling, forty-nine-acre estate just outside of New York in New Canaan, Connecticut. The estate also features an exquisite permanent collection of twentieth-century painting and sculpture, along with temporary exhibitions, all set on a striking landscape. With this package you will receive a private tour for two at this exemplar of elegant minimalism—an experience reserved for just a handful of lucky guests each year. 

Equally gem-like are your accommodations at the boutique hotel, The Lowell, just steps from the celebrated fashion houses on Madison and Fifth Avenues. Established in 1927, The Lowell is the final word on elegance and privacy. Enjoy wood-burning fireplaces (a rare find in New York) and landscaped terraces with sweeping city views, and the refined comforts of a private apartment. Partake in the hotel’s gracious hospitality for two nights in a one-bedroom suite.

Few know New York’s art scene as does James Cohan, founder of the James Cohan Gallery and one of the world’s finest international gallerists. Led by Mr. Cohan himself, experience two enriching hours of transformative contemporary art by American and international artists—both established and emerging—during a private tour of Chelsea.

Acclaimed for his collages that incorporate unconventional materials, Fred Tomaselli is one of America’s most collected and sought-after artists. His works often include illicit substances such as hallucinogenic plants and herbs. A longtime resident of Brooklyn, the artist offers the winning bidder an exclusive tour of his vibrant studio.
