Walk Around a Billionnaire's Estate
Admission is free, but online reservations for docent-led tours are required to visit the home of industrialist Mitchell and Emily Rales. Nestled in an affluent DC suburb on the site of a former foxhunting ground, the Rales' 200-acre estate houses one of the world's premier privately owned collections of comtemporary art. With massive sculptures and paintings by influential modern artists like Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Marc Rothko, Richard Serra, Jasper Johns, Dan Flavin, and Ellsworth Kelly doting the indoor and outdoor spaces, Glenstone embodies the integration of art, architecture, and landscape.
