I made an overnight trip to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" and "Kentuck Knob" several years ago yet had never visited (or even heard much about!) Wharton Esherick's Museum in my own backyard...until this week! How did it happen that I knew nothing about the artistic genius of this man who lived in our neighborhood until his death in 1970 when I was in college? My friends and I were so impressed by our tour given by a very knowledgeable guide that we are now headed to Yellow Springs to see "Poplar Culture"...an exhibit of woodworkings by craftsmen who were invited to use their talent to create a piece from the wood of a tulip poplar tree that once stood near the entrance of Esherick's studio. The Wharton Esherick Museum is a must see for locals and for anyone who finds their travels take them in the vicinity of Valley Forge National Historical Park. Check out the website/blogs first so you know what to expect... and call ahead for reservations if you plan to visit during the week!
