Creative Passport: A Benefit for the Wharton Esherick Museum

We’re not having one party this year — we’re having three — and they are your passport back to the Esherick Museum!

As we continue to recover and reopen from the closures of the past year, we invite you to join us for an afternoon of activities and conversation to reconnect with Esherick’s creative legacy. With three dates to choose from and a maximum of 22 guests for each date, this event offers the chance to connect about the future of the Museum with WEM’s Director, Curator, and other staff — and tap into your creative side.

Events will include a variety of special guests from Artist-in-Residence Roberta Massuch to Sam Olshin, lead architect from our campus planning team, and others!

Guests will try their hand at woodworking and sketching activities, take a behind-the-scenes look at our recently rediscovered archives including personal effects and letters from Esherick himself, and hear insights into our future campus plans. With light refreshments, complimentary handmade boxes, and a raffle item from the Lohr Woodworking Studio, you won’t want to miss this afternoon at the Museum!

Choose from one of the following dates:

Oct. 17, Oct. 24, Nov. 14
