Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: Wharton Esherick Museum
The Historic Artist Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip is BACK in 2022! Join us to explore the unique creative spaces and art-making practices of six American artists.

Fueled by the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, and the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums, homes, and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of artworks.

Kicking off this six-part virtual road trip from Malvern, Pennsylvania, we’ll explore the creative spaces of designer and sculptor Wharton Esherick. Esherick’s highly individual, hand-built Studio was constructed over a 40-year period and weaves together Arts and Crafts, Expressionist, and organic designs. We’ll explore the present-day site and learn about the programs and exhibitions that connect contemporary audiences to Esherick’s brilliant creations and ongoing legacy.

This free, one-hour event will take place via ZOOM on April 18, 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. One registration is needed per household. Live American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided.
