Wharton Esherick (1887-1970) was a sculptor who worked primarily in wood, readily extending his unique forms to furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors, buildings and more. 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 300 of his works on exhibition, has been preserved much as it was when the artist lived and worked there. The Museum is open to the public through guided tours for which reservations are required.



We will be CLOSED Friday 10/9.
