The Wharton Esherick Museum is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in 1971 with a mission "to preserve, maintain and exhibit the artistic creations of the late Wharton Esherick so that the public may gain enjoyment, education and inspiration from Esherick's life work."
It costs more than $200,000 a year to staff, maintain and insure the Esherick Studio and collection and to carry out the Museum's programs and preservation efforts. That's about $40 per visitor.
Admissions, sales and membership dues cover less than half this amount. The rest must come from donations, grants and endowment income.Your generous support – through membership and/or contribution – helps to preserve the Esherick Studio and keep it open for you, others and future generations to enjoy.
