Description:
 Master artist Wharton Esherick was heralded by the national art and design community as the "Dean of American Craftsmen" because of his stunning wooden creations. Few people know that Esherick also had a rich cultural personal life, which included several long-time friendships with acclaimed contemporary writers. Join us as Wharton Esherick Museum Curator & Program Director, Laura Heemer explores Esherick's close connections to literary figures such as Sherwood Anderson, Theodore Dreiser, Ford Madox Ford, and Jean Toomer, while also examining Esherick's abiding affinities for Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman.
