A tent rises like a castle in the field.
Music wafts through the grass.
A vintage airstream serves as a bar.
A boxcar rests on forgotten tracks.
A fire burns under a span of sky.
A silo towers above this rural piazza.
Shade sails drape off the silo to provide cover from the sun by day, and the surface of the silo becomes a screen to display video art installations by William Kentridge and Marilyn Minter at night. Interspersed around the site are neon sculptures by artist Lauren Booth.
Music, dance, visual art, and children's workshops happen throughout the field.
Using locally sourced food, Cassandra Purdy creates a delicious variety of culinary treats each day for guests.
An outdoor granite amphitheater in the woods overlooks the field from the adjoining hill. Designed by artist Mark Mennin with 120 tons of pink Connecticut granite, it looks down on a stage made from white granite sourced in Massachusetts.
The second performance space is a pristine white tent rising up like a castle, which will be the main site for our headlining concerts and Tent talk lectures.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the space whether or not they are attending an event, and may relax on the lawn to take in the sunshine with good food, drinks, and art.
