Missing the Wharton Esherick Museum these days? We are too. So, why not create your own virtual exhibit and bring WEM to your home!
Explore our Collection Highlights, our comprehensive list of Museums with Esherick in their Online Collections in our Online Resources for Educators, or other online resources.
Choose a theme for your exhibit. Perhaps it will be stools, chairs, music stands, an artistic or historical movement, or something else entirely?
Now, it’s time to decide what goes in your exhibit! Select works that fit your theme from the resources listed above. Your exhibit could be virtual or physical. It could be an interactive online experience, a presentation, a poster, a diorama, or anything you imagine! Don’t forget a label for each piece you chose. Labels should explain how the piece ties into your theme. Add as much or as little supplementary research as you’d like!
