The Wharton Esherick Museum’s permanent collection numbers nearly 3,000 objects and documents the expanse of Esherick’s life and work. The collection includes not only works of art like furniture, sculpture, or prints, but also the buildings on the Museum’s campus and Esherick’s personal belongings, such as his library, clothing, art supplies, and ephemera. It also includes photography and archival materials, as well as works that Esherick acquired from members of his circle including Marjorie Content, June Groff, and Henry Varnum Poor.
