In celebration of the exhibition, Movement is Life, now on view at the Wharton Esherick Museum, we look forward to highlighting Esherick’s relationship with dancer Ruth Doing, a friend and an early supporter of his work. This 20-minute program will explore the flow of ideas between modern dance, intentional living, and graphic arts in the communities of women that developed around teaching a form of modern dance called “rhythmics.” Along the way, we’ll look at some of Esherick’s early woodcarvings, in particular, his iconic woodblock print of 1923, Rhythms.

This is a free online event; advance reservations are required. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the conversation. Please register below to receive instructions on how to join us! If able, please consider a $5 donation to support our ongoing programs. Donate HERE.
