About Open House:

The purpose of the Open House event is to introduce the public to the architectural wonder that is Ilan-Lael.  Designed and built by James and Anne Hubbell, the annual Open House has introduced thousands of people to this amazing property.  Thank you for helping us share the inspiration of our art-filled home. 

This is also the Ilan-Lael’s most important annual fundraiser!  The Ilan-Lael Foundation provides space for people to explore art and nature, and to stoke their own creativity.   The visitor experience you help us provide is critical to our mission and to our ongoing success.  Thank you for volunteering your time with us!

Our annual Open House is the best opportunity to meet James and Anne Hubbell, their family,  and the studio artists.  We hope you will share the opportunity and invite your friends!  For more information or to purchase tickets: 

James’ artwork can also be seen on and the Ilan-Lael Foundation is on Facebook!
