From the 1910s through the 1930s, Wharton and Letty Esherick lived as artists and homesteaders in a farmhouse that they called “Sunekrest” (pronounced sunny-crest). At some point during this era, they paused their creative labors long enough to have life masks made, a process involving covering their faces entirely with plaster in order to fashion lifelike molds. This twenty-minute program focuses on the lives the Eshericks lived at Sunekrest, and the artful environment in which they had their likenesses cast. Along the way, we’ll delve into WEM collections of woodcut prints and archival photographs.
