Please join us for the Annual Members’ Party!

This year, the party will include the dedication of our Historical Marker sign! The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission administers the historical markers program to capture the memory of people, places, events and innovations that have affected the lives of Pennsylvanians over the centuries since William Penn founded his Commonwealth. We’re thrilled to see Wharton Esherick and his legacy recognized with this marker!

We’ve got a great day planned with guest speaker Paul Steinke, Executive Director, Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia, an open house of the Studio & 1956 Workshop, and the Opening & Awards Ceremony for the 25th Annual Woodworking Competition & Exhibition. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the competition, we’ve revisited the theme of stools, among Esherick’s most iconic designs. Come and cast your vote for the Members’ Choice Award, which will be voted on and awarded during the Annual Members’ Party.

Guests will also enjoy catered refreshments, a hands-on printmaking activity and the chance to bid on original artwork, cultural experiences and more in our silent auction!

Tickets $45

Please note, space is limited and tickets will not be available for purchase at the door.
