The Wharton Esherick Museum celebrates and preserves the legacy of Wharton Esherick (1887 – 1970), an internationally significant figure in the landscape of art history and American modern design. As a sculptor, Esherick worked primarily in wood and extended his unique forms to furniture, furnishings, interiors, buildings, and more. His motto, “If it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing,” is evident in the joyful expression of his work.
A National Historic Landmark for Architecture, Esherick’s Studio is filled with more than 300 of Esherick's paintings, prints, sculpture, furniture and furnishings and is preserved much as it was when the artist lived and worked there.
We invite you to visit the Museum through a guided experience for which reservations are required.
