The James A. Michener Art Museum presents a tour of the Wharton Esherick Museum and Studio, as part of the programming around its current exhibition, Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism.
Wharton Esherick (1887–1970) was a sculptor who worked primarily in wood, readily extending his unique forms to furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors and buildings, creating sculptural environments. His motto, "if it isn't fun, it isn't worth doing," is evident in the joyful expression of his work, inviting the eye and the hand. A National Historic Landmark for Architecture, his hilltop studio/residence, with more than 200 of his works on exhibition, has been preserved much as it was when the artist lived and worked there.
Located near Paoli, just west of Vallery Forge. Transportation directions to be provided to registrants. Museum is not wheelchair accessible.
$20 per member, $25 per non-member, and $10 per student with valid ID, includes museum admission. Advance registration required. Call for student discount ticket: 215.340.9800.
