In celebration of Daring Design: The Impact of Three Women on Wharton Esherick’s Craft, currently on view at the Michener Art Museum, we look forward to highlighting Esherick’s relationship with one of his greatest patrons, German American businesswoman, Helene Fischer. In this informal, 20-minute program, we’ll explore Fischer’s role in opening doors for Esherick to pursue furniture-making as sculpture. Along the way, we’ll take a peek into the Museum’s collection of archival photographs and books from Esherick’s library.
