Glass House was proud to host the 12th Annual Simpson Housing Service "Art4Shelter".

A two-day event that kicked off with a Free Benefit Art Sale, where attendees explored artwork from local artists while enjoying complimentary wine and light hors d'oeuvres. The second day was met with a Family Day event, where art lovers of all ages participated in kid-friendly exhibits and activities like face painting and crafts.


Art4Shelter is a beloved community event held annually that showcases the donated works of hundreds of generous artists for a massive exhibition and sale. All proceeds go toward Simpson Housing Services’ shelter and housing programs. Simpson annually serves 2,000 people, including 300 families and 600 children.
