It was Letty Esherick’s interest in progressive education that drew the Esherick family to Fairhope, Alabama in 1919. Fairhope, a “single-tax” community, left lasting impressions on the Esherick family and played a pivotal role in shaping Wharton Esherick’s artistic career. From lifelong friendships to explorations in the studio, Fairhope Days takes a focused look at the Esherick family’s time there and brings some of Esherick’s early work into the spotlight.Exhibitions are displayed in our Visitor Center and are free to the public. Please note that this does not include entry into the Museum - for which admission and advance reservations are required.
Opening reception for Fairhope Days will be held on Sunday, June 3, 1-4pm.
