    Solstice Evening: A Conversation on Intentional Living with Dr. Tom Guiler

    Wharton Esherick Museum

    1520 Horse Shoe Trail
    Malvern, PA 19355
    • Friday June 21st 2024, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
    For the second year in a row, the Wharton Esherick Museum will mark the solstice with meaningful conversations that ground us in a sense of place and the rhythms of nature. Join us as we celebrate the summer solstice with a Studio open house and evening lecture exploring different ways people crafted their lives and communities with intention during Esherick’s lifetime. Gathered in the 1956 Workshop, we’ll host a talk with Dr. Tom Guiler, the Director of Museum Affairs at the Oneida Community Mansion House (that’s right, the home of the communal society that made our—and Esherick’s—beloved Community Plate flatware!). Tom’s work focuses on utopian communities in 19th and 20th America such as Roycroft, Byrdcliffe, and Rose Valley. The program will pay particular attention to the distinct historical periods that motivated people to form utopian communities, seek out different rhythms for their lives, and why communal experiments continue to persist today.
